Darting 2006 Riesling Spatlese - Ungsteiner Herrenberg (Germany)

Riesling doesn't get anymore chuggable than this one on a hot day ... this Darting 2006 Spatlese was just the ticket as the sun beat down.  Now Spatlese can be somewhat of a gamble in the heat (or anytime), too sweet and it's syrupy, too dry and ... let's just go with the sweet part, dry Riesling is good anytime.  This Darting is a delight at 7 years of age, the nose has peach and apricots rolled in with a lick of honey and lemon.  Taste follows the nose to a tee and still with enough acidity to cleanse the palate leaving enough sweetness behind for a long finish that gets you craving the next sip - quite delicious.
