Forstmeister Geltz-Zilliken Butterfly Riesling 2019
The Zilliken Riesling Butterfly is able to inspire the connoisseur with the first sip so much that he wants to perceive its stimulating effect more intensely with further sips. He can do this on the most diverse occasions, because the Zilliken Riesling Butterfly combines the liveliness inherent in it with abundance and strength. This makes it a very flexible food companion that can be enjoyed with light Mediterranean dishes but also with a slightly more sumptuous dish. In addition, due to its harmonious balance between acidity and sweetness, it is an ideal aperitif, but it also shines as a digestif to round off a nice day.
Bottled with 11% alcohol and an unknown but rather moderate amount of unfermented sugar, the off-dry 2019 Riesling Butterfly offers a refreshingly pure, fine and slatey Riesling bouquet that is immediately attractive. Fruity, charmingly round and juicy on the palate, it is irresistible due to its grip, mouth-watering piquancy, finesse and salinity. Possibly one of the finest Butterfly bottlings I have tasted so far. Tasted from AP 10 20 in April 2020.
