Haart to Heart 2002 Riesling (Germany)
I'm sure it has been said many times many ways, the Germans sure know how to make a good Riesling; and this is just another fine example of that fact. Here it is, an 8 year old Riesling and it has a freshness about it that makes you want to jump in. The nose and mouth followed suit with apple, lemonade and honey smells and tastes; if you really looked for it there was some petrol but it was more like a subtle seasoning than a main component. Interesting to note the dry finish that tasted like buckwheat honey - paired beautifully with the Chinese food we consumed this evening.
