Brauneberger Riesling QbA, 2014



tasting notes:

The 2014 Brauneberger Riesling opens with a very clear, fresh and flinty/stony bouquet of white, green and lemon fruit aromas. Sweet and piquant, this is a still very young and grippy Riesling that does not fly over the palate like the estate Riesling. Bottled with 16 grams of residual sugar, it tastes sweeter than the feinherb estate Riesling but is more complex and needs more time to get its balance right. The finish is long and grippy, and gives a good aging potential. The Brauneberger is more complex than the estate Riesling, but it's less fine and filigreed at this early stage.
