Subtle, powdery, creamy nose. Round and gorgeous with great precise ripe fruit balanced by tight acidity. Bravo!

Wine SpectatorThis is spicy, evoking vanilla, nutmeg and cinnamon notes, with accents of apple and smoky slate. Racy and harmonious, presenting a long, expansive finish. Drink now through 2036. 150 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Norheimer Kirschheck Riesling Spätlese is clear, piquant and salty on the nose, with great purity and a lovely flintiness framing the ripe yellow apple and grapefruit aromas. On the palate, this is a pretty, complex and salty Spätlese with generous but delicate fruit and lingering mineral tension and salinity. Grown on the same soil as the Leistenberg Kabinett (grey slate) but from a fully south-facing site, this is a perfect Spätlese terroir. Although this wine has just 9% alcohol, it is intense and complex and has 65 grams of residual sugar. It is a really full-bodied Riesling.
