Yes it’s on the pricey side, but it’s worth every cent and besides, when was the last time you tasted a 21-yearold riesling? Some assume that the word ‘spatlese’ is going to mean the wine will be really sweet. Yet this incredibly fresh riesling from the famous Neumagener Rosengärtchen vineyard is beautifully balanced. Scented with lemon, mandarin, a tweak of honey, cedar and pineapple all followed by nutty, biscuity notes and a limey, lavender-like finish. So good.
