Christoffel 2005 Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Auslese* “one star” as always comes from the same rocky parcel and manages to display elegance and lightness, he opines, even when – as in this instance – the fruit reached 110 degrees Oechsle. Vanilla, licorice, and strawberry preserves in the nose are followed by a creamy, rich palate that preserves vivid wet stone and salt minerality, sweet herbal and floral essences, and strawberry and kiwi fruit. The finish is a model of lightness, lift and takes off into a creamy bank of strawberry chiffon, flowers, and mineral dust. Like the rest of this year’s Christoffel Auslesen, one should not hesitate to harbor this in a cellar for two to three decades. (DS)
Pale golden-yellow with a green tinge. Yellow plum, quince and acacia blossom mark the bouquet. The creamy peach flavor is accented by a splash of salty minerality.Supple in texture but possesses enough spice to give grip to the lingering finish. (JP)
Cool, brisk flavors of green pear, guava and litchi are wrapped in a firm acid structure, showing a sleek balance and supple texture. It's a little unyielding right now, but give this time in the cellar and it should blossom.
