Nierstein Pettenthal Riesling Auslese GG 2015 Schatzel
€ 107,69 (in Vat)
The citrus colored 2015 Nierstein Pettenthal Riesling GG is pure, elegant and spicy on the deep and aromatic nose, where herbal and flinty aromas underline well-defined mirabelle aromas. Full-bodied, round and lush, with gorgeous intensity, finesse and elegance, this is a Pettenthal with great expression, remarkably fine acidity and silky texture. The finish is intense and juicy but again so clear, finessed and elegant, so full of salts and fine tannins. This is a terrific Riesling with great expression and generous fruit. It will age for decades. Bottled in June 2017, tasted twice in August.
Winespectator / James Suckling (96)
A radical wine of great originality that is just beginning to reveal its treasures. Noble discretion on the nose and enormous minerality on the palate. The finish is very long. Drink now and for decades to come.
