2012 Mittelheim St.Nikolaus Riesling Grosses Gewächs trocken, Rheingau, Germany

Firm, deep and tart, almost slightly reductive nose with restrained yellow-fruity and cool vegetal aromas, floral nuances, distinct minerality and some herbs and smoke. Concentrated, warm, ripe, increasingly juicy fruit with air, herbal flavours, some candy and again a hint of smoke, very fine acidity, compact and persistent on the palate, nutty barrel tones, very slightly sweetish melting, deep, multi-layered and powerful, still seems young, intense, cooling minerality, a hint of dark berries, long, concentrated, juicy, herbal-spicy, slightly smoky and intensely mineral finish. Still does not appear to be fully developed.

Editor note: Translate to English Tief, fest und komplex in der Nase, hochreife Frucht, vegetabile Aromen, heller Tabak, feine Kräuter, ein Hauch schwarzer Beeren und angetrockneter Blüten und enorme, würzige Mineralik. Dicht, tief und kompakt im Mund, wieder hochreife Frucht mit herben vegetabilen, tabakigen und erdigen Aromen, leicht gewürzig, hochfeine, präsente Säure, nachhaltig und tief am Gaumen, massive, herbe Mineralik, zupackend, pfeffrige Aromen im Hintergrund, sehr komplex, aber noch völlig unzugänglich, aus einem Guss, von schweißtreibender Kraft, aber ohne jegliche Schwere, langer, vielschichtiger Nachhall. Braucht viel Zeit.
