Back in the blogging groove.

Weingut Pfeffingen, Weilberg Riesling Grosses Gewächs trocken 2009, Pfalz
Quite an innocuous straw-yellow in appearance, if truth be told - which belies what lies within.
Rather muted on the nose to begin with, but it's amazing what a bit of air does. A lovely fragrant combination of yellow fruit flavours, peaches and herbs. On the palate, fully loaded with sunshine: peaches again, elegant yet complex, intense and highly strung; the feminine pendant to the manly Herrenberg. While the latter is earnest and firm, this is more of a diva. And a pretty one at that.
