Joel Payne on Germany 2005 (Jan 2007)

Rich golden yellow. Smoky aromas of candied apple, cinnamon and lemon zest embedded in honeyed botrytis. The succulently creamy papaya fruit is spiked by a lemony citricity.This full-blown wine might appear clumsy at present, as its enormous depth is currently hiding its underlying elegance.For the long haul.
