2007 Toni Jost Erste Lage Hahnenhof Riesling Trocken
The Hahn is a Grand Cru (Erste Lage) vineyard in the Middle Rhein, entirely owned by Toni Jost. Already with a relative amount of age but still an infant compared to Riesling’s aging capability, this was a very good match for a sushi dinner I had recently. It is worth mentioning that I had the best sushi I ever experienced in Bucharest so far from Itadaki sushi. Kudos to Itadaki’s chef for the sushi he makes.
2007 Toni Jost Erste Lage Hahn Riesling Trocken
Yellow gold color. The nose is well developed, happily combining sweetness, spices and minerality. Aromas of quince pie, pineapple and peach hold their ground very well next to warm rubber, freshly shaved ginger and ripe citrus fruit. Mouth watering acidity, lively on the palate, with generous amounts of flavors on the palate and a long finish, with spicy and citrus fruit flavors that linger in the aftertaste for a good amount of time. Really nice wine, with enough complexity and killer acidity to make it convincing. (91/100)
