Schloss Schonborn Marcobrunner Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese 1971

Sweet Wine from Germany
Review Date : 29-Dec-2017
Very dark, deep, mahogany-brown colour with green hues on the edge. The bouquet is full, solidly concentrated and dense, quite complete with aromas of raisins and sultanas, fruit-cake, caramel and toffee. Very, very sweet and unctuous in texture, with masses of flavour, showing raisins, sultanas, caramel and toffee. Exotic spices abound. The textures are soft from the richness and lusciousness, but there is fine, underlying acid cut. This flows smoothly, and carries to a very long and sustained finish. Some tertiary earthiness creeps in at the end, but this remains glorious stuff. I thought this a Mosel, and at the Trockenbeerenauslese level. Erbach, Rheingau. 19.0/20 Nov 2017 RRP $N/A
