2005 Carl Schmitt Wagner Riesling Spatlese Longuicher Maximiner Herrenberg

schmitt_wagnerHot summer night. Thought about how refreshing this was going to be, all the way home. Pale straw color. On the nose, youthful, minerally, peach, lime, tangerine, gasoline, honey, some floral elements, with earth, and no oak. On the palate, off-dry, medium+ intensity, peach and tangerine nectar, laced with slate and mineral, medium at best on acidity, there seems to be a thread connecting the fatter more luscious 05’s, lower acidity. Solid bordering on monstrous finish, lots of pretty fruit, very layered, under-appreciated genre that’s also starting to gain momentum.
