Reasonable Markus Molitor Riesling Multifaceted And Manicured

Okay, my title is confusing, but German wines confuse me, so I'm just getting even.

Markus Molitor Haus Klosterberg Spatlese 2007 Riesling, $21.00, 92 points Sp├Ątlese-Late Harvest ), is a sleek and pure libation. If you click on the above link, you'll get the fact sheet that is more informative than I can be about this wine; all I know is that it was elegant, delicious, refreshing, and difficult to pin-down, but sometimes we'll see something quite beautiful and not be able to explain the essence of it, hear a melody that we just can't hum, or taste a wine that everyone seems to describe differently; I found (cold) hints of kumquat and golden grapefruit, but as it warmed there was crisp apple and a slate-like quince dominating, but others had peach, still others had citrus. 
On the rim of the finish was a delicate fructose tangerine (Acid 6.9 grams/liter). So, if you are daring, if you have $20.00 or so to spend, and want something outside the American-box, give this a try, write your own review and let the people of New Hampshire into your insights and opinions
