2011 Burg Ravensburg Husarenkappe Riesling VDP.Grosse Lage trocken, Baden, Germany

Bottle image in HD without watermark

Developed, delicately waxy, nutty and a touch floral, ethereal and petrol fragrance with calm, warm yellow fruity aromas, hints of sage and a touch of dark fruit. Ripe, melting, relatively sweet fruit, candy notes, wax, some butter and sage again, moderate acidity, mellow tannins, some power and persistence, mineral and again also black berry hints, almost a little resinous-woody notes, good to very good, melting, somewhat warm, again mineral finish. Doesn't have too much bite, but especially the minerality still gives it some backbone.

Editor note: Translate to English Schon etwas entwickelter, zart petroliger, vegetabiler und erdig-mineralischer Duft nach teils reifer Ananas, angetrockneten Zitrusfrüchten und Melonen. Leicht süßliche Frucht im Mund, teils getrocknete Kräuter, wieder petrolige, getrocknet-florale und erdig-mineralische bis zart salzige Noten, etwas welk und antrocknend am Gaumen, passende Säure, kräftiger Typ, harzige Noten, guter Abgang mit Alkoholwärme.
