WTN: Another Brückchen the wall

2005 J & HA Strub Niersteiner Brückchen Riesling Kabinett - Germany, Rheinhessen (12/23/2020)
Fifteen years post vintage from a half bottle under screw cap. It’s showing a bit younger than I might expect, but there’s tertiary development. A bit of creme brulee rides over the peachy fruit, and there’s a mix of spice and a bit of that oily element on the back end. It has the 2005 richness, and shows more Spätlese in style. This could probably go another ten years, but no need. Perfect with roasted pumpkin soup for lunch.
