Georg Albrecht Schneider Niersteiner Hipping Spätlese Riesling 2017
|Region||Germany, Rheinhessen, Nierstein|
|Brand||Georg Albrecht Schneider|
Hints of pine frond, earth and smoke entice on the nose of this unusual, remarkably well-priced Riesling. Semi-sweet in style, it’s rich and creamy on the palate with luscious peach and grapefruit flavors. It’s surprising nuanced too, exposing layers of steel, crushed mineral and acid that meld beautifully through a long finish.
Primary juicy pineapple and tangerine flavors abound in this fruit-forward yet elegant spätlese. Semisweet in style, it's pleasantly honeyed but balanced by zesty streaks of lemon-lime acidity and a kick of spicy minerality. The finish is long and elegantly floral.
