Forstmeister Geltz Zilliken Riesling Spatlese Saarburger Rausch 2005

A short note today, in honour of summer and simplicity.

Another German riesling from the Mosel-Saar-Ruuer region. A nose of clay-like petrol expanded into a palate of citrus, apple and peach. This had a fantastic nose and nice flavours, but ended up with a mediocre mouthfeel for a riesling, which ideally should be light, airy and yet full flavoured.

Very Good
$45 at Liberty
