Spreitzer Rosengarten Riesling Grosses Gewächs

Spreitzer Rosengarten Riesling Grosses Gewächs

Herbs, quince, mint, pea-shoot and a curious underlying stoniness; it made me think of oolongs and Sencha and grassy green teas; a singular Riesling of leaf upon leaf.

Review:
Anyone who thinks that dry riesling is unremittingly hard and austere should try this joyful wine. There’s so much mandarin and nectarine here it’s almost (but not quite) overwhelming. Yes, there’s some acidity, too. This is so lively and juicy its hard to resist. Drink or hold.
