Dr Wagner Mosel Riesling 2012

Dr Wagner, Saarburg, VDP Riesling, Mosel, Germany 2012

Screw cap closure, 8.5% abv, £9, Waitrose

WSET style tasting note
Appearance – clear and bright, medium intensity lemon, showing tears.

Nose – clean on the nose, with a medium intensity, youthful, with aromas of green fruit – ripe orchard fruit of ripe bramley apple, conference pear and a hint of ripe grapefruit.

Palate – a medium sweet wine, with high acidity, no tannin, low alcohol, medium (+) smooth and viscous body, medium intensity flavours of ripe dessert apple, ripe cox’s apple, a hint of unripe pineapple skin and a hint of over-ripe grapefruit. A medium (-) length with a clean crisp finish, with a  slight grip on the gums.

Quality – a good quality wine, with perfectly balanced acidity and residual sugar, which are harmonious with the intensity of flavour.  A delicately fruity wine, dominated by primary orchard fruit notes, of simple complexity and modest fruit concentration, enhanced by the mouth-wateringly high acidity. A smooth mouth feel on a shortish finish with a light gummy grip.  This wine will not improve with age, and should be consumed within a year.
