2015 Rudolf Fürst Centgrafenberg Riesling Großes Gewächs - Germany, Franken (9/9/2019)
-- popped and poured --
-- tasted non-blind over 3 hours --
-- AP #: … 008 16 --

NOSE: light pineapple; medium-light petrol; powdered sugar; a light smoky note emerged with air exposure.

BODY: medium-light bodied; golden green-yellow color of medium-light to medium depth.

TASTE: crazy-intense acidity --- off-the-charts high; lots of mineral; acidity did settle down a little bit over the course of 2.5 hours, but it's still extremely forceful; a bit smoky; zesty; I like this, but I really have no idea where this is going to go with age ---- it seems, in the future, anything from 87 points to 95 points is a possibility. Hold.
