Von Kesselstatt Piesporter Goldtropfchen Auslese ‘Domklausenhof’ 1971

Riesling from Germany
Review Date : 29-Dec-2017
Deep, light golden-orange colour. This has attractive, piquant aromas of citrus fruits along with honey and toast, with caramel notes, quite mature and complete, and maybe a little past its plateau with tertiary earthy notes. The aromatics grow in breath in the glass. Very sweet, but with a stylish restraint, in fact with tautness at the core, showing ripe citrus fruits, honey and caramel. And a little toffee, with a little floral lift. Very smooth-flowing with light background acidity. Developing a hint of tiredness and possibly musty-musky notes on the finish. I thought Rheingau at the Auslese level (though no Auslese listed). Mosel. 18.0+/20 Nov 2017 RRP $9.24
