Merkelbach Kinheimer Rosenberg Riesling Spätlese [#2]

Two fuders, two different pickings. No. 2 is pure pure Mosel, great firm bones and slate-slate-slate. No. 3 shows botrytis and feels less fruity; it’s very good but I like #2 best.

Tasting Notes

Aroma!! Though this is an Auslese in most years, this Spät is entirely euphoric on entry; a parfait of slate and fruit, and then the acidity sizzles along into the finish, in a galvanic salt-wracked spray of slatey fire-and-ice. — Terry Theise
