2011 Nierstein Ölberg Riesling Grosses Gewächs trocken, Rheinhessen, Germany

Somewhat developed and a touch subdued, delicately waxy and floral citrus nose with peach notes, herbaceous and planty aromas and some minerality. Ripe, juicy, clear fruit, some planty to herbaceous and nutty tones, a hint of caramel, fine acidity, almost still yeasty tones, good persistence, some melting, delicate grip, distinct minerality, a hint of dark berries, oily nuances, very good finish with rather tart juice and fine spice.
