Reviews of purchase Balthasar Ress, "Rudesheim Berg Rottland" Riesling Spatlese, 2001
The wine is bright green-gold color.
Rich, compact, pleasant, sweet taste of wine is supported by fresh acidity. In the final, there is a slight honey tone.
The fresh aroma of the wine is filled with notes of orange peel, ripe yellow tropical fruits and light hints of spices.
The wine will be a good pair of fish sauce, Asian dishes, mature cheeses such as Epuass and fruits.
