Grosses Gewachs Trocken AP #27
Sparkling golden color, more green-white at the rims, trace of fizz clings to the glass. Saline and chalk provide edge to the nose, diesel fumes, lemon curd, mineral water and lilacs, seems to offer a little of a lot, the pear, yellow apple, peach fruit scents acceptably consistent, overall sturdy and slow dissolve. Medium-bodied, while it has a firm mouth feel the acidity is just above average, not a decisive driving force. Floral and honeyed, bright tangerine, lime, lemon citrus. Softer yellow apple, peach, apricot to pear fruit, basic but satisfying. Fizzy feel through the finish. More muscular than tight, does not give one the impression of being shut down.
