Bollig-Lehnert Dhroner Hofberger Auslese Riesling 2008 Mosel, Germany 

My Rating 95 Points.   

Price $20.
Beautiful deep gold in color.

Very pronounced nose of diesel, lemons, peaches, melons, tropical fruits, bananas, minerals, barnyard, grass, red apples, spices, herbs and light pepper.

Medium bodied, buttery and smooth, with a nice high acidity, to balance out all that sweetness.

Medium sweet on the palate with lemons, citrus, tropical fruits, sea salt, cream, herbs, spices, peaches and tangerines.

Long finish with limes on the very ending.

What a gorgeous Riesling this 8 year old is. Probably the best I’ve had so far. Aged so nicely, with aromas and flavors that are not found otherwise in one that was not aged.

Beautiful balance and complexity and very enjoyable by itself.

I just sipped on it ,enjoying the beautiful weather we are having.

8% alcohol by volume.
