Seller: rarewinemerchant (124) 100%, Location: Artarmon, Ships to: AU, Item: 142190100985 HOTLINE: 0409 121 151 Bott Geyl Riesling Sporen Grand Cru 2012 Bott Geyl Riesling Sporen Grand Cru 2012 Bott Geyl Riesling Sporen Grand Cru 2012 First vintage of this grand cru. Suppressed nose, but lovely orange peel, lemon juice and sweet spice. Expressive palate needs age to develop the nose further. 17+ Points Jancis Robinson Vivid straw. Brooding aromas of fresh minty herbs, flowers and white stone fruit; very Sporen, combining depth, richness and power. Then surprisingly fresh and lively on the palatealmost dainty in factwith very pure elements of lime jelly, white peach and minerals. Finishes clean and long, with youthfully chewy tannins and a bright mineral overlay. This is still a baby: forget about it in your cellar for six to eight years, then have fun comparing it to the Schoenenbourg from the same vintage. Bott noted that this specific parcel of vines was planted in 1921; I should add that it’s also a very rare Riesling vineyard planted in the Sporen, a mainly marly-calcareous grand cru most famous for being one of the top sites for Gewürztraminer in Alsaceand one of my three favorites for this variety, by the way. 94 Points Ian DAgata Vinous Shipping Shipping: Freight - RareWines is able to deliver to the majority of Australian suburbs using various courier companies as well as Australia Post.
