Weingut Spreitzer Rosengarten Riesling Grosses Gewachs 2019
Herbs, quince, mint, pea-shoot and a curious underlying stoniness. Notes of oolongs and Sencha and grassy green teas come to mind upon first sip. A singular Riesling of leaf upon leaf. 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.
