Heinz Eifel Riesling Spatlese 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The first sip reminds you of biting into a fresh apple, crisp and alive. Hints of citrus, particularly lemon, lime and mandarin orange, can be discovered in the aroma and flavor. A fresh-fruit dollop of sweetness at the first swallow is entirely seductive, with a snap of tanginess in the aftertaste providing grown-up pleasure.

Big candied lime and lime aromas greet the nose along with complicating notes of chives and quartz. This is fairly sweet, or rather it's sweet though there's enough acidity to make you think it's not that sweet, but the weight of the wine says otherwise. There are lots of lemon, lemon curd and almost pineapple flavors here over light mineral tones that lead to a modest tart apple finish that shows a lingering sweetness. 86pts
