Spring klassic

Spaetrot 2007 “Klassik” White (Thermenregion) – 50% rotgipfler, 50% zierfandler. Hints of pinkish fruit and dried powdered sugar. Let me unpack that last: it’s not sweet (at least not overtly; some residual sugar is certainly suggested, whether or not there actually is any), and there’s a rolling juiciness to the finish that persists in maintaining that off-sugar illusion. A refreshing wine with hints and allegations of more, but I don’t know that it’s structured for more. (6/11)
