If anybody is to fall in love with this German spatlese by Schlossgut Diel would not be a surprise for me at all. The low level of alcohol combining with not overly sweetness and fine acidity make Schlossgut Diel Goldloch Riesling Spatlese 2011 so approachable but yet could be living a few decades to come. It is so delightful for good Summer days. This should go pretty incredible with food with spiciness such as Asian food, lightly creamy or fruity dessert, or even on its own. Store it up, I say.
