2004 Riesling Clos Hauserer, Zind Humbrecht
Has a deep hue in the glass for a Riesling, almost burnished gold. The aromas exhibit a strong mineral character, really juicy lime fruit too, but carefully restrained. The palate is remarkably tightly wound; intense in nature with ripe, juicy green lime, and a pronounced wet stone minerality. For a wine so rich in dry extract this reveals a precise, delicate personality, but there is no denying the latent power. Dry, very mineral and hugely impressive this demands patience as it will be able to last a couple of decades or even beyond.
