Not much evolution since I last had this in 2010, a bit more integrated perhaps but still fairly primary. Super nose with lemon zest wild yeast and a bready note. Great Apple and citrus mix with a tough of that yeast. Spatlese sweetness but good acidity typical of the vintage. Lovely, classic wine.
Useful to be able to check into a bottle, but this is really not a wine to be opened right now. It's all about sugary sweetness, with the fruit and mineral flavours very reticent and not emerging even with some time in the glass and vigorous swirling.
A chalky medicine, green apple, vegetal, an old unkept refrigerator. Palate gained some weight? Sweet entry leading to a burst of delicious apples with hints of creaminess and a tangy spritz here and there. A really long finish.
Consistent with previous note although it has been over a year since our last bottle. Liquified baked apple with great acidity that keeps it in the fairway. Touch of petrol in the finish. Good match for spicy Cajun Chicken.
