Something Small & Sweet

Not all posts have to include 10+ plus wines, right? :-) This small beauty - from a half bottle - was opened and enjoyed some weeks ago.

2002 Erdener Prälat Riesling Auslese Goldcap, Dr. Loosen
A smooth, pure, elegant and very deep nose with gorgeous notes of white peaches, overripe pears, honey pastils, clam stock and summer flowers. Very elegant and subtle. Feels like this is on top of its game right now.
The taste is tight, finely tuned, elegant and semi sweet with a lovely mature corpulence and notes of candied lemons, peaches, dried honey and lots and lots of crushed rocks. The finish is long and at the very ending it is semi dry. Just lovely to sit and sip this nectar. Would surely keep for ages but I venture a guess that it will never become better than this.
