WTN: Eternal youth

2011 Dönnhoff Riesling - Germany, Nahe (10/10/2018)
From a bottle I moved into insanely cold professional storage on release, this was youthful to the point of immortality. I would not say it hadn't budged, but if someone had told me it was a current vintage, I would not have questioned it. That being said, it was delicious, integrated, just above off-dry, and showing plenty of palate freshness despite being from a lower acid vintage. Citrus fruit glides on a gossamer latticework, carried by icy cold water over stones smoothed by the passage of time. Drink now through forever.
"The party told you to reject the evidence of your eyes and ears. It was their final, most essential command."
