Wagner-Stempel, Siefersheimer Heerkretz Riesling Spätlese 2020 Rheinhessen

17.5

Like a genie emerging from its bottle, this Spätlese unfurls layer after layer of refined fruit, of peach, of mango, of lychee all tied together with a thin, floral ribbon. Fruity concentration and silken elegance. Yet more complex than the fruit reveals at first blush. Layers of concentration move at different paces to create a balanced whole. Luscious and opulent but a wee bit short on the finish. A true guilty pleasure of fruit indulgence as only a Spätlese can be. (PS)
