2011 Burgerspital Wurzburger Stein-horfe Riesling spatlese 9%

From the Franken area of Germany, a bocksbeutle with a screwcap.

The palate shows lemon sherbet, fruit-tingly acidity, plus some chalk and minerals. It’s a pure, driven wine that is crisp and delicious with lingering depth. Lovely balance and the degree of sweetness is just right. Very pleasurable.

Drink to 2025, score 91.
