The 2006 Oberhauser Brucke Riesling Auslese smells of mint black tea and raspberry distillate. The herbal red berry and honey concentration on the palate by no means precludes an uncanny sense of mineral presence. Salts and wet stone coat the palate even as citrus berry and resinous herbs penetrate with almost frightening intensity and focus. No concessions to cushions on the furniture for lolling about (or to easy early drinking) have been made. Lock this tightly-wound and -stitched super-essence of Brucke away for at least 15 years before revisiting and count on more than four decades of fascinating evolution. My guess is that this - even more than Donnhoff's other 2006 Auslesen - will always taste like a wine from some other vintage at least when measured against its great Middle Mosel counterparts.

Rich golden yellow. Luscious aromas of passion fruit pineapple and sweet lime mingle with a delicate hint of botrytis. A bright spiciness along with elevated minerality enliven the palate. Finishes smoky and long.
