Gessinger Zeltinger Sonnenuhr Riesling Spatlese Feinherb Alte Reben
Weingut Albert Gessinger
Germany - Mosel   

The Zeltinger Sonnenuhr (sundial) region is also known for its Devonian slate (without greywacke) and has even more extreme steep slopes up to 45 degrees!
Light straw-yellow color. This has a very elegant, well-structured and mineral bouquet with aromas of tropical fruits, honey and lifted exotic florals. Medium-dry to taste, rather mineral, gently rich flavors of limes, florals and honey show with lusciousness. The mouthfeel is soft, but enlivened by bright, fresh acidity providing a linearity. As the wine flows, the flavors open out, but are kept in a linear flow from the acidity that becomes racy, leading to an off-dry finish. This is a classical, piquant halb-trocken style and typical representative of a Riesling.
