Julius Kayser Waldracher Krone-Ehrenberg Riesling Auslese 1971

Riesling from Germany
Review Date : 29-Dec-2017
Deepish orange-gold colour, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is full, solid and densely packed, quite stolid in expression, with citrus fruit, honey and caramel and a little toffee. Very rich and sweet, the flavours of honey, caramel and toffee showing over the citrus. Certainly secondary. Some sherry-like oxidation appearing, and the back palate showing dried phenolic textures, with nutty elements now present. There is still good acid liveliness. A tad dried out on finish. Some tasters saw VA notes. My pick as a Mosel Auslese. Ruwer 17.5/20 Nov 2017 RRP $N/A
