Have another flyer....

from Peter Reading's 'Vantage Tardive'

Donnhoff Oberhauser Brucke

Riesling Eiswein 1998, 375 ml.,

colour, old gold
as Grandmother's wedding ring
assayed in 1900
24 carat.

Nose, intense, honeyed,

Palate, confirming all these
together with profound fruit.

Picked late from the frozen vine
the Qualitatswein mit Pradikat,
lusciously concentrating
fructose, has even countered
the tabloids' and broadsheets' faecal
facts slapped daily
onto the cheap lino.
