Tasting notes

17/10/2005

From a low-yielding old vineyard on rare quartz soil, this is very lively compared with many overripe 2003s; pure minerality, terrific length and depth of fruit, broad and complex with a dry finish. Epitomises all that is great about German Riesling today. Drink up to 2020.
