Weingut Alfred Merkelbach Kinheimer Rosenberg Riesling Spatlese #2, Mosel, Germany 2017

Regular price $ 32.20

Reflecting marginally higher acidity and extract than the A.P. #1, but picked in the same parcel just a day later, this bottling displays a surprisingly different personality. It leads with fermentative notes oddly but not unpleasantly reminiscent of sesame and peanut oils. There is the merest hint of floral perfume by way of apple blossom, but nothing reminiscent of A.P. #1’s honeysuckle profusion. Scents and flavors here are dominantly of lightly baked apple; the feel is glossy but with an underlying sense of firmness; and the juicy finish is transparent to slate as well as encouragingly sprinkled with salt.
