2009 Grafen Neipperg Muskateller
This is a very pleasant bottle of wine. Some residual sugar (13g/L) supports the fruit without seeming too sweet. It is aromatic, with white flowers, pineapple, and a touch of gooseberry. On the palate, pineapple, apricot, a pinch of nutmeg and some ginger zest, plus that tiny bit of gooseberry, all join together. The mouth feel is rich, the finish long. Drink with blackened redfish.
