Dr. Thanisch Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spatlese 2003
from Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Germany
Graach is an excellent wine growing village in the heart of the Middle Mosel. The steep slopes of the Graacher Himmelreich vineyard are facing South-West. They are exclusively planted with Riesling.
The nose displays a sweet floral quality of plummeria, fresh peach with a touch of petrol character which is common in German wines. Often the more age a German wine has, the stronger the petrol character. There is nothing wrong with wines with this aroma. This 2003 vintage, only shows a slight – medium petrol aroma. Brimful with character, the Himmelreich Spätlese palate is a wonderful mix of peach, honey and mango. The medium weight interplays enticingly with the finely bound acidity.
