2008 Mosel

2008 Markus Molitor Riesling Spätlese, QmP Haus Klosterberg, Mosel

Back to Mosel, forgetting that Toronto's still in the middle of winter. Markus Molitor is a well-regarded producer, but we rarely see it here. Yes, I know it's a huge shame to drink these wines so young, blah blah blah . . . I just wanted to drink it.

And it was delicious.

Tropical fruits, forward, with an underlying minerality. The 2008's are ripe, but they do lack that acidic structure. Very primary at this point, but how can you resist.
