A very tight cork in this bottle, required the use of a sharp knife and, eventually, passing a wine / cork-crumb slurry through a coffee filter.
Straw color, petillance is noticeable on the glass.
Sweet peach smell, more than a hint of Botrytis edelfaule.
Sweet noble-rot-infected peach and apricot flavors, petillant on the tongue, rich dessert treat. Impressive for such a young Riesling, but I'll come back for another bottle (which I hope is easier to open) in five years more.
Pricey bottle for $56.99, but good!
