28/02/99 – Domain Trier (Germany) Serriger Heiligenborn Spatlese 1990

State Domain Trier (M-S-R) Serriger Heiligenborn Riesling Spatlese 1990
This is an astonishing bargain for a mature and truly gorgeous riesling. From the very reliable state-run vineyards of Trier, the colour is a luscious golden yellow. On the nose there are beautiful aromatics of flowers, limes, petrol and unctuous guava and pear, all tinged with honey. The palate is oily and mouthfilling with opulent peach and tropical fruit but a beautifully pure core of acidity that keeps it balanced and sharp through a long, fruit-laden finish. Sensational value for money. Majestic 4.99
