Dr. Hermann Riesling Beerenauslese Gold Cap Mosel Erdener Prälat 2012

Jeffery Lindenmuth - July/August 2014

An aroma dripping with honeyed stone fruits—peach and apricot—along with candied orange, pastry, and generous smoke leads to a creamy, fruit-filled palate, where the sweet, plump fruit is laced with spice and buoyed by ample acidity in a richly layered finish that goes for days.
