The 2012 is a new high point in our quest for rock-your-boat Riesling. The apple blossom and citrus nose is that of a promising youngster, but the broad, incredibly flavorful palate belies its delicate 9% alc. Quince, lemon custard, lime, and honey-tinged mineral notes are carried on a wave of bracing acidity (8.5g/L with 3.06 pH). The finish is nothing short of poetic in an epic sort of way. This beauty is guaranteed to get markedly more complex in the next couple of years and to age well for 20 more (2034). So buy it by the case. Besides the pure joy of it you can gloat over what an amazing deal it was back in the day.
