ZILLIKEN 'BUTTERFLY' RIESLING MOSEL
FORSTMEISTER GELTZ-ZILLIKEN

Bottled with 11% alcohol and an unknown but rather moderate amount of unfermented sugar, the off-dry 2019 Riesling Butterfly offers a refreshingly pure, fine and slatey Riesling bouquet that is immediately attractive. Fruity, charmingly round and juicy on the palate, it is irresistible due to its grip, mouth-watering piquancy, finesse and salinity. Possibly one of the finest Butterfly bottlings I have tasted so far. Tasted from AP 10 20 in April 2020.
