2007 Dr. Konstantin Frank Johannisberg Riesling Dry
The color is very pale but the light catches flashes of bright gold. The nose is very soft and aromatic, starting with pears and honeysuckle, their sweetness tempered by a tiny grating of fresh lemon zest. The palate opens with fresh-cut tangy-sweet pineapple, merging into softer, sweeter, pears and honey. It ends with nutmeg and a quick flash of Reisling-true petrol, and a mid-length finish. This is la lovely bottle of wine. It has just enough sweetnes to line up perfectly against spicy food, and is sunny and smooth enough to sip outside on a sunny afternoon.
