2007 Domdechant Werner Riesling Classic – Rheingau, Germany
I wish this was the first Riesling I ever tasted: I would have fallen in love with the grape immediately. Incredibly easy to drink, perfectly balanced, a hint of sugar offsetting wonderful acidity in the very good 2007 vintage. To begin, the wine offers sweet grass and green aromas, as in a garden just after the evening dew has fallen. There’s a touch of tropical citrus especially in the flavor. Finishing, the taste lingers pleasantly along the edges of your mouth, almost fizzy in its liveliness.
