1992 Rheingau

1992 Hans Lang

1992 Hans Lang Hattenheimer Hassel Riesling Spätlese, QmP Rheingau

The first wine of last weekend's barbecue. An old riesling is the greatest thing you can drink, and I always always feel.......elevated when I drink one.

Dark gold colour, maintaining its saturation. Beautiful in the glass. Lots of honey on the nose, very rich. Stewed fruits, apple and pear, with lovely minerality. Good sweetness in the mouth, with a mineral finish. This wine has length. Holding up every well for a 17 year old. Delicious.
