Paul Blanck Riesling 2003

Member Review by hemingway fine wines:

Holding up well under screw cap in April 2011. Colour golden hue with obvious bottle development. On the nose it shows complex, lifted characters of mineral/citrus, ripe golden peach and a hint of honey. On the palate there is a lovely balance between the acidity, fruit and an aged honeycombe roundness - the acidity is all still there with a clean, crisp finish yet the complex fruit characters come through well on the mid palate - this is a wonderful example of of an entry level riesling developing its full potential under screw cap. I didn't want the bottle to end, but it did!
