2012 Wegeler Doctor Riesling Spätlese

Post by djewesbury » 23:13 Fri 24 Oct 2014

Drunk at the Wegeler winery in Bernkastel with Norbert Breit on 12th August 2014.

The nose is delicate and flowery. A huge mouth, rich apricot and all sorts of other fruit, pineapple and tropical fruits, with bustling acidity that fizzes and dances at the end. AW77 believes this will age well – the fruit will dry and become more toasty.

I found this note in my little black book: "a very rich body, apricot, really very good for a Spätlese, great". I really liked this wine.
