Schloss Johannisberger Roslack Riesling Auslese 2006
An extremely expensive bottle of Rheingau Riesling here – at $100 retail for a 375ml bottle. Here was a chance to taste greatness in a Riesling at last. The nose was replete with layered mineral aromas, multiple types of citrus (including some tropical citrus), and a very slight scent of petrol.
The palate was quite expansive with peach, apple, key lemon pie, spice, grapefruit, apricot, and an amazingly delicate texture. Like gossamer in the mouth, but with more weight and structure than expected from such delicacy and low alcohol, the Rosalat certainly was a very beautiful riesling. However, at this price I was expecting more. This was great paired with migneron cheese and caribou and fig terrine.
