The Weinbach 2006 Riesling Schlossberg Selection de Grains Nobles strikes me in some respects - not so surprisingly - as an accentuation of the corresponding V.T. Fortunately while that description encompasses enormous concentration of nut paste and pit fruits fresh citrus and glossy richness of texture the alkaline notes that concerned me in the V.T. are muted here and arguably constitute a part of the wine's positive complexity. Abundant wafting high-toned distilled pit fruit notes and liqueur-like concentration of mandarin orange add to a dazzling performance that I suspect will be repeatable over the next 30 years.

Spices and exotic flowers on the recent nose. Then fairly glyceral in the mouth but quite firm-edged for all its sweetness. Wonderfully tactile chewy wine but not yet demonstrative. Builds slowly and mounts impressively... Spices and exotic flowers on the recent nose. Then fairly glyceral in the mouth but quite firm-edged for all its sweetness. Wonderfully tactile chewy wine but not yet demonstrative. Builds slowly and mounts impressively on the very long discreet finish which features vibrant acidity and citric freshness.

Offers live-wire acidity and subtle flavors of apricot anise and papaya with a touch of smoke. A juicy elegant wine with a lingering nut-tinged finish. Drink now through 2019. 15 cases imported. -AN
