2019 Würzburg Stein-Berg Riesling Grosses Gewächs trocken, Franconia/Franken, Germany

Already almost a little developed, vegetal and clearly petrol-like citrus stone fruit scent with peppery traces, hints of black berries and clear minerality. Ripe, melting, a touch sweetish fruit, fine acidity, some grip of crumbly tannin and some warmth, vegetal nuances on the palate, hints of candy, good persistence, minerality in the background, a bit of dark berries, petrol and floral nuances, very good finish. Not quite a safe prognosis; seems to develop surprisingly fast.
