Tasting Notes

Seems like a lotta Spätlese but you couldn‘t have left any behind; this has a wonderful intricate nose of slate and exotica; very high toned (the pH is 2.95!); the palate has almost brash high-notes, but lovely rich mid-range notes of pulverized mineral and murmury low notes of pear syrup. About as fine an expression of German Riesling as a man and his dog can score.

Review:
Rumpf’s 2004 Munsterer Dautenpflanzer Riesling Spatlese smells of pineapple, pear and white peach, following with a delicate and refined palate impression saturated with a sense of liquid slate and pure pear, peach and pineapple fruit. The finish is smooth and long with generous fruit augmented by subtle spice and crushed stone. Classic 2004 virtues are on display. (David Schildknecht)
