1999 Michelbach Apostelgarten Riesling Auslese, Franconia/Franken, Germany

Translate to English Gereifte, schon etwas firnige Nase mit Noten von teilweise getrockneten Kräutern sowie kandiertem Kern- und Steinobst, dazu nussige und erdig-mineralische Töne. Im Mund süße, teilweise eingemachte gelbe Frucht, kandiert-nussige und pflanzlich-herbe Noten, eingebundene Säure, wiederum etwas firnig und sehr mürb, Altersnoten und Anklänge an Orangeat, nicht ewig tief, guter, wieder süßer Abgang, sanft nussig ausklingend. Für Liebhaber von Weinen, die etwas über den Punkt gereift sind.
