Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Auslese Joh Jos Prum 2009
Pale green-gold, this is extraordinarily tropical on the nose, given the latitude of these vines. The floral notes, so characteristic of young Mosel, are given a supporting role, allowing the exuberance of lychee, star fruit and physalis centre stage, all complemented by nuts and cream and refreshed by citrus and minerals. The palate delivers similar aromatics. Opulent and leesy, it is silk-textured and generous, constantly refreshed by hints of sherbet and lemon zest. It remains poised and focused throughout and on through a protracted, fine and elegant finish.
