Kreuznacher Kahlenberg

Riesling Auslese 1992, Nahe
[£Curio, contact Cambridge Wine Merchants (excellent) 01223 568991 for similar wines from this producer]

FROM NAHE, antique gold in colour with a fresh curranty nose including something a touch gamey (very slight). Friendly, oily edge with a piercing acidity. Very full bodied with urgent flavours on the palate, ripe clementines. Highly palatable, almost candied, almost caramalised. Absurdly tasty. Absolutely alive and kicking. Something reminiscent of that slight whiff of freshly developed polaroid. A tenacious aftertaste. Delicious.
