2014 Retzstadt Langenberg Silvaner trocken Grosses Gewächs, Himmelspfad, Franconia/Franken, Germany

Deep and firm, clearly vegetal, reminiscent of root vegetables with restrained, tart yellow fruity aromas, herbal notes and minerality. Ripe, slightly warm, melting fruit with nutty, rooty and a little herbaceous aromas, a touch of butter and tart, somewhat chalky minerality, persistent and dense on the palate, some depth, some grip of crumbly tannin, has power, ethereal traces, very good, simultaneously melting and firm finish.
