TN: 2020 Weingut Hermann Ludes Thörnicher Ritsch Riesling Spätlese trocken

2020 Weingut Hermann Ludes Thörnicher Ritsch Riesling Spätlese trocken - Germany, Mosel Saar Ruwer (12/10/2022)
Sipped on this during the England-France World Cup match. It did not change much over the course of two hours, but I am leaving half the bottle for tomorrow. It's certainly dry, as opposed to being on the off-dry end of the trocken scale. Tart citrus and white peach fruit dominate in the aromatics. It has a touch of bitterness on the palate that accentuates the dryness of the wine, but then also a sort of artificial note - diet Sprite-esque that is a little off-putting. Hopefully a day of air (or years of cellaring) can mute that element in an otherwise appealing wine.
