Deep golden colour due to the years of maturing. Swirling a glass reveals viscosity and several legs are visible on the side of the glass. Intense and mature on the nose, immediately disclosing a late harvest where a significant part of the grapes was infected by the noble rot. Reminiscent of honey, gingerbread, dried apricots, and figs, noble mould. Dry on the palate, almost full bodied, with rich, oily texture. Acidities are rather moderate for the variety. This is an extreme style of Riesling “M” not hiding its noble rot character. Intense and persistent. A style where the balance between elegance vs intensity and richness is very much on the later. To lay-down.
Try with moulded cheeses, intense rich foods of white meats, grilled fish. Serve at 8 – 10 °C, slightly above usual.
2012 was a warm, early, and high-quality vintage with plenty of ripe and healthy fruit. Very similar to 2011 but a bit fresher with more acidities.
18 months in stainless steel. Lees, stirring.
Ready now and will be great to drink until 2025.
WINE IS CULTURE AND ALWAYS HAS VALUE AS A LINK TO SOCIETY.
