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.
Just a reminder that “kabinett” does not mean “dry.” Clear, medium lemon yellow in color. Clean aromas of pear, yellow apple, pungent floral, steel wool, wax, and some bandage (Brett). Not sure how I feel about it personally. On the palate it’s off-dry, medium-low acidity, medium body and finish; flavors of overripe peach, applesauce, and candied lemon. Pair with caramelized onion and Gruyère quiche.
This opens with apples and pears dipped in honey, a lovely lemon background with great acidity, and a mouth-coating feel and lingering finish. Residual sugar is apparent, but not overwhelming. It is food-friendly enough to drink with almost anything other than red meat. Pork chops are highly recommended.
This very pleasant dry Riesling would be a great introduction to the style for those who think "Riesling" and "sweet" should always be used in the same sentence. Barely ripe pear and apple, still hard and tart, with just hints of sweetness and an underlying minerality, are followed by a touch of petrol flavors, all with a full mouth feel, great acidity, and a lingering finish that teases a memory of limestone, lemon, and honey. Drink it with anything that ends in "...wurst."
Though the weather near me has been flirting with fall, I have faith that we've got at least one more good summer weekend left.
Rich with baking aromas, floral and and fruit flavors, all strung together on a wire of clean defining acidity. It's like a very thin puff pastry heaped with pears and starfruit, spiced with nutmeg, and dried key lime and tangerine peel, all sprinkled lightly with the juice of a Meyer Lemon. Drink with roast chicken.
The best to be said of this wine is that it is interesting. Chances are, neither you nor the person you pour this for will have had an unoaked Pinot Noir from Germany before. Once you have tried this thin, cherry-licorice flavored attempt, you will both be able to say you have.
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.
