Saarburg Rausch Spatlese 2 Versteigerung, Zilliken 2008
(Geltz-Zilliken Saarburger Rausch Riesling Spätlese Auction) AP: 02 09. This was made from the first harvest from a parcel planted with three-year-old vines. The nose exhibits glorious flavors mixing peaches, apricot flowers and chamomile. The wine is all about refined lightness with great sappiness and inner concentration, and a textbook example of power without weight’ unique to great Mosel (Saar in this case!) wines. The finish shows striking purity and is impressively long. It is a hard-to-resist Spätlese to drink by the bottle. 2015-2028
