1990 Schlossgut Diel Auslese Goldkapsel #04 (750ml)15 2 0 0
A wonderful experience demonstrating more finesse with age than I have encountered in younger Diel wines ,which often exhibit the Pfalz rounded viscosity with less chiseled facets than their Rheinghau or Mosel neighbors. A beautiful golden light amber hue and plenty of Pfalz terroir that has evolved into a fused blend of apricot, fusel oil, a hint of sweet orange peel, smokey apple and a lingering finish. After an initial glass, finished the bottle days later after only vacu-vining. The second tasting revealed more subtle notes. Not quite Donnhoff, but nicely made.
