Lovely, on the dry side of spätlese, yet expressive and harmonious, offering peach, black currant, pineapple and mineral notes supported by a vibrant structure. Fine lingering finish, too. Drink now through 2008.
A mouthful of wine with a fine silky structure. It is enormously multilayered and complex. The flavors are like an explosion of ripe pineapple and black currant. It has a long, minerally finish.
A brilliant 2003 Riesling. Backward yet complex and nutty, with plenty of slate character. Impeccably balanced and long, with floral, apricot, herb and citrus notes unfolding along its length. Best from 2006 through 2016.
The 2004 Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling Spatlese truly smells like its name, of honeyed drops from tiny golden Riesling berries. Tropical fruits, lily, fresh apple, and black currant also emerge from the glass. On the palate, it displays beautifully honeyed concentration with luscious pineapple, grapefruit, and mango as well as praline and marzipan. For all of its sweetly-suggestive flavors - to say nothing of its high residual sugar - it finishes with only restrained sweetness, with clear multi-fruit intensity, and with welcome refreshment to accompany its honeyed richness. If you still wonder what is so special about this famous site from which, sadly, very few growers extract anything like its true potential, then you must try this wine!
Nik Weis' wines are often so reductive that they are hard to taste young, and this is no exception. But behind that feral, reductive stink is a wealth of concentrated, golden fruit, as smooth and juicy as a Charentais melon. The acidity builds beautifully, holding the flavors long. So buy it, forget about it for at least six years, then revel in it with a crown roast of pork.
Subtle bouquet of pineapple, nut oil and lemon zest. Luscious yet crisp papaya fruit is brightened by a refreshing mineral character. Deceptively light and wonderfully drinkable, this spatlese is sheer fun.
Ample and rich, offering a range of flavors from violet to cinnamon, nutmeg, citrus and slate that permeate a sturdy, light-weight structure. Complex and deep in subtle and persistent ways. Very fine and long on the peach, vanilla and mineral finish. A beautiful expression of site from one of the Mosel's best. Drink now through 2015.
