Weingut Karl Haubs-Barzen Erben, Bernkasteler Badstube Auslese Riesling 1990, Mosel, Germany
Tasting Note: A 1990 Auslese riesling enjoyed 20 years later in 2020 that still retains, classic Mosel qualities including a bright, tart, midpalate.
Medium-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of white nectarine, petrol, golden apple and blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied riesling has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and completing with a lemon-citrus-infused, medium-plus finish.
Only 9% in alcohol, this wine could be enjoyed as an aperitif along with salted nuts or paired nicely with sushi.
Drink now; not suitable for aging.
