2011 Selbach Saar Riesling Spätlese
White peaches, limes and a green leafy undertone mark this as Saar wine for me. The peach element certainly says riper vintage. It's rather sweet right now, though bottle age should tame that. There's adequate acidity coursing through the background, though I would prefer this had been finished (in whatever way it was finished) as feinherb/halbtrocken. Good wine, but it will rest for a good while in my cellar before I go opening any quantity of bottles.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
