The sun-ripened skin of yellow mirabelle plums and their ripe flesh suggest both texture and fruitiness. This burgeons with gloriously ripe fruit, which attains an apricot touch on the palate, but is held firmly and with beautiful poise by lemon zestiness and citrus freshness. A wonderful combination of generosity and tang with lovely concentration, brilliant fruit and a long finish.

From a stony (mica schist), south to southwest-facing terraced vineyard below the Hochäcker, the 2015 Riede Pfenningberg 1ÖTW Senftenberger Riesling demonstrates intense and concentrated ripe Riesling flavors, with flinty/stony aromas and a touch of caramel. Full-bodied, rich and creamy, with a lush, salty, piquant palate and a touch of lactic flavors, this is a very elegant and well-balanced Riesling with fine tannins and a long, salty, aromatic finish. It is a rich but finessed and mineral Riesling with very good aging potential. Tasted July 2017.
