2013 Michelbach Apostelgarten Riesling trocken Grosses Gewächs, Ickelhans, Franconia/Franken, Germany

Somewhat developed, slightly legume-like vegetal and somewhat smoky aroma with restrained yellow fruity aromas, floral tones, tobacco, mushrooms, hints of bacon and a hint of rubber. Ripe, rather tart, juicy fruit, again reminiscent of legumes, chanterelles, some grip of crumbly tannin, lots of light minerality, smoky hints, very slightly drying on the very good finish.

Editor note: Translate to English Leicht getrocknet-pflanzlicher, etwas kräuteriger und auch ein wenig nussiger Duft mit angetrocknet-gelbfruchtigen, etwas altholzigen und erdigen Noten. Relativ herbe Frucht im Mund, wieder getrocknet-pflanzlich, leicht nussig-altholzig und erdig, straffe Säure und ganz leicht sandiger Gerbstoff-Griff, salzig im Hintergrund, gute Nachhaltigkeit, mittlere Kraft, noch ganz leicht spröde im ansonsten sehr guten Abgang.
