2021 Retzstadt Langenberg Silvaner VDP.Erste Lage trocken Alte Reben, Franconia/Franken, Germany

Still somewhat unapproachable, smoky and moderately woody aroma with aromas of ripe yellow fruits, ethereal-herbal tones, a hint of cumin, tobacco, butter and quite distinct minerality. Ripe, firm, somewhat warm, tangy fruit, fine acidity and noticeable grip, smoky and slightly nutty tones on the palate, a hint of pepper, again also partly ethereal herbs, root vegetables in the background, plenty of chalky, stony and salty minerality, compact structure, good depth, quite multilayered, very good, tangy, melting and at the same time grippy, again very mineral finish.
