Bottled with 10% alcohol, the 2019 Herzog Rieslaner Beerenauelese is precise and enormously concentrated on the spicy and somewhat limey nose. Dense and piquant on the palate, with cooked stone fruit aromas and caramelly notes, this BA is still very sweet, with piquant acidity and a potent finish. Wine to be cellared for at least 10 years and up to 50+ years. Tasted as a sample in April 2020.
Dense, dried-fruit character - everything from apricot to fig - which is typical for this grape variety and style. Very concentrated, but so bright. Super lush palate, but no hint of heaviness, the finish very long and seductive. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
