2013 Rüdesheim Riesling trocken, Rheingau, Germany

Very firm, yeasty, nutty and a hint of smokiness with restrained, clear yellow fruity aromas, a little green tea, stony minerality, hints of herbs and some yellow spice. Ripe, again firm, distinctly juicy fruit with a little yellow spice and shell tones, fine, lively acidity and lots of grip from ripe tannin, crab meat and some yellow spice on the palate, smoky tones, intense minerality, a hint of Brazil nut and tobacco, good depth, has tension and pressure, enormous power for a wine with such moderate alcohol, very delicate buttery tones, very good, firm, grippy finish.
