Tasting Notes


Maturity:
Keep/Drink

ABV:
8.5 %

Notes

The most multi-faceted of the Weil Spatlese, layers of stones and complex ripe fruits, pineapple, soft yellow peach, mango and then saffron. Very long and persistent but also light on its feet. Great purity and length and a refreshingly salty finish. This has everything needed to be something very special for those patient enough to wait a decade.

Notes
Fusil, marine and carnal notes are prominent already in the nose, anticipating the mouthwatering savor that is subsequently delivered. The mid-palate is polished and delivers an impression of salted veal stock mingled with white peach and grapefruit. The finish offers a gripping concentration of salt, chalk and citrus that nearly eclipses the wine’s generous fruit juiciness and renders sweetness a mere afterthought. While lacking the seductive floral nuances of the corresponding Turmberg, this Gräfenberg nearly makes up for that thanks to its deep savor and overall intensity.
