Magical rizza

Clemens Busch Marienburg Spätlese Goldkapsel Riesling 2011, Mosel Valley, AUD $99

The colour is deep golden and the bouquet is mind-bendingly complex and fascinating, full of spiced honey, toast, candied citrus peels and marmalade. Fantastic flavour and the maturity is ideal right now. A magical wine. (10 per cent alcohol; cork)
