2017 Josmeyer Hengst Grand Cru Riesling: a colour of pale yellow with a slightly green hue; a bouquet of peaches, ripe pears, and - increasing with oxygenation - Meyer lemons.
On the palate: green herbal flavours with hints of peach blossoms and honey; it is juicy with minerals in the background. The wine is rich, intense, displaying a good texture, with a finish of 40 seconds.
This delicious growth is fruity and at the same time dry with a beautiful balance. It is rare rare to find such a Riesling that expresses such a broad range of flavours so convincingly. A Grand Cru Riesling of extraordinary qualities. It should be at its peak about now or in a couple of years; drink - 2028. 4.5/5
