2019 Zell-Weierbach Neugesetz Riesling Grosses Gewächs trocken "Georg Arbogast", Baden, Germany

Very slightly muted, rather calm, herbaceous-vegetable scent with restrained yellow-fruity notes and floral traces. Tart, fine-juicy, rather slender fruit, again a hint of muted, fine sandy tannin, suitable acidity, good persistence on the palate, quite clear, tart mineral tones, very delicate nutty in the background, certain depth, very good, firm, tart finish with grip.
