Ripe Riesling

Dr. Bürklin-Wolf
Deidesheimer Hohenmorgen

Riesling Spätlese trocken 1999,

Rheinland Pfalz, Germany

Drank over 2 days..firstly with some
Smoked Salmon sandwiches..
then a day later with Sauerkraut.

Clear classic nose..trace of petroleum
on the second day..but not too forthcoming...
what you do get are some peaches;
soft spices on the palate...
this is where the wine gets plus points..
just so finely weighted...
a real pleasure... at it's peak now...

acidity integrated into the fruit.
I wavered between 2 decided on

Points 17.25
