Weingut Max Müller I. 2011 Silvaner Eigenart (Germany)
I got this wine on a trip to Germany and was very impressed with this barrel aged Silvaner which had quite a lot of structure on both the nose and palate; but it seems that wines in other countries tend to taste much better when you are there but when you get home they go completely south. But this time I got happily-lucky: aromas of vanilla from the barrel intermingle with lemon and lime citrus fruit ... which is quite alluring. Palate also mixes barrel and fruit in an enticing and exciting display on the palate - nice creamy vanilla note dance on the tongue with citrus and pleasant palate pleasing acidity. On the finish was some nice lime pith bitterness that balanced everything out.
