Schloss Vollrads Riesling Spatlese 2013
Wine EnthusiastRose petal and sage notes lend a garden-green freshness to this sprightly semidry Riesling. Nervy lemon-lime flavors jolt the palate awake, but are softened by plush tones of apricot and honey. It's a squarely structured wine that's revitalizing sip after sip.
Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Schloss Vollrads Spätlese has no botrytis but is characterized by ripe fruit and its racy acidity. Very pure, spicy/mineral and cool on the nose, it seems much more earthy than fruity. Ripe and juicy as well as sweet and piquant on the well-balanced palate this is a full-bodied Riesling with a good and stimulating length.
Wine SpectatorA honeyed style, filled to the brim with rich minerality and luscious creaminess. Very lush, with flavors of baked pineapple and pear sauce. Fresh and juicy on the finish. Drink now through 2035. 1,500 cases made.
