2001 Mehringer Zellenberg Riesling Auslese, Römerhof
A bulked up half bottle (500 ml) of Riesling, this semi mature Auslese went perfectly with a semi hot Thai chicken wok.
The nose is deep, with a fine dried up sweetness with notes of ripe peach, wet asphalt, wool (would have me going to Chenin if this would have been poured blind), furniture oil and a hint of saffron. Beginning to mature. Very, very good.
The taste is medium bodied, somewhat mature with notes of dried apricots, minerals, birch sap, matchbox and saffron bread. Ends semi dry. Drinking great after 20 years.
