The 2017 Erdener Herzlei Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese Alte Reben (Gold Capsule) opens with aromas of darker toned and concentrated stone fruit along with honey notes. This 2017 is enormously rich but refined, precise and elegant on the well-defined and balanced palate. It is a beauty in terms of generosity, finesse and balance. The finish reveals great tension, mineral finesse and generosity. This is a great TBA from five terraces of 120- to 130-year-old vines on blue and gray slate soils. Tasted in March 2019.
