The Hirtzberger 2009 Riesling Trockenbeerenauslese Singerriedel - representing, like its B.A. counterpart, an early, post-precipitation (but also post-B.A., mid-October) culling of botrytized bunches- mingles mirabelle, apricot, and peach preserves; honey, caramel, and nougat in an almost syrupy concentrate that is at the same time saturated with lemon juice. Somehow - perhaps it's a matter of this wine's sheer density - there is not the sweet-tart bifurcation exhibited by the B.A., but instead an impression of near-implosive pit fruit concentration in a caressingly, creamily viscous yet nearly weightless medium, shot through with quickening, saliva-inducing electricity and salinity. This elegant, actively engaging, indeed downright irresistible elixir ought to be worth following for at least a quarter century, provided of course you can latch-on to 375 ml. of its 200 liter volume, which, incidentally, is not really a tiny amount when compared with past Hirtzberger T.B.A.s.
