A rich and powerful Riesling, releasing fireworks of fully ripe yellow fruits on the tongue. It has a deep almost oily structure, with demanding fruit reminiscent of dried peach and apricot, which linger long on the palate.
Bright and crisp on the nose, with dominant aromas of candied peach, lemon oil and acacia honey. The lusciously sweet tropical palate maintains a remarkable delicacy in spite of the wine's considerable richness and depth. The long, glossy finish is underscored by slate and offers a refined spiciness. Few ausleses from the vintage possess this much class.
A spicy style, with a little more zip from the structure. Its apricot, vanilla pastry and nectarine notes are precise. Although slimmer in profile than Reinhold Haartrsquo;s version, this exhibts more mineral quality. Drink now through 2020.
Concentrated and reduced, this is as dense as peach butter and heavy with slatey minerality. Rather than being a detraction, though, the weight mdash; and its persistent acidity mdash; feels like a treasure chest that just requires time before it opens to reveal its jewels. Have a decadersquo;s worth of patience.
Vivid and tensile, exhibiting lime, candied berry and slate aromas and flavors that ride the tightly coiled frame. This is ripe and steely at once, with a lingering graphite and mineral recoil. Best from 2014 through 2050.
Goldtrouml;pfchen is a German term that means ldquo;tiny golden droplets weeping from Riesling berries,rdquo; and the flavor of this wine is the only way to understand what that word truly means. This is a lush, creamy Riesling, which carries flavors from tropical fruits, to nut oils, to black currant and pink grapefruit. The wine is extremely complex while managing to be delightfully elegant and delicate.
The St. Urbans-Hof 2004 Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling Auslese smells of pineapple, mango, banana, black currant, flowers, and honey. For all of its heady and gaudy tropicality and florality, in the mouth this wine displays startlingly lemony citrus and a crisp apple side to the fruit. All of the flowers and tropical fruits reprise in the finish along with mineral salts, fresh citrus, and black fruits. This wine combines a remarkable combination of verve and richness, ably representing the results of picking for an enormous concentration of tiny, largely unblemished berries in a grand cru site.
