Tasting Notes

“A telling moment occurred. The wine is a sponti (the German slang for spontaneous ferments) and spent a long time on its fine lees, and when I lifted it to my nose it smelled for all the world like……Mosel Riesling. And it made me wonder: how much of that aroma is ineluctably Riesling itself, and how much are the sponti and fine-lees aromas? I mean, here’s a Grüner Veltliner about a thousand miles away from the Mosel, and “Mosel” is all I can smell.” Terry Theise
