Zilliken Riesling Auslese Saarburger Rausch 2005

Member Review by Sweetstuff:

2005 Zilliken (Forstmeister Geltz) Saarburger Rausch Riesling Auslese; Purchased in New York City at Crush, 57th Street; $45/750 ml.Drunk with charred Ahi tuna at dinner with Barbara.Medium light copper.Peaches, walnut, some honey and dried fruit.Very vivid acidity, balanced sweetness; neat Rausch smokiness on the finish. Clear, clean, and beautiful youngish Zilliken Auslese, all is in place as it should be.Excellent match with tuna.91/100.

Spiced pear, lime and golden raisin notes swirl around a laserlike structure that keeps this centered. A racy style, with less concentration, yet showing plenty of intensity and a lovely lime and slate aftertaste. Best from 2010 through 2030. 100 cas... Wine Spectator.
