2009 Dr. Pauly-Bergweiler Bernkasteler Badstube Riesling Kabinett

An interesting wine, one that changes significantly with its temperature. Chilled, it leads with white flowers and lychee, trending to Meyer lemon on the mid-palate, all with an underlying pear. Acids are light, residual sugar evident, but all pleasantly so. Let it get a bit closer to room temperature, though, and it changes. The nose is a little toasty, with apples and a touch of gasoline in the background. On the palate, baked apple and sweet pear blend with white pepper, leading to a finish that lingers and brings back the memory of your last ginger snap. Drink with chicken salad before it gets too cold for a picnic. Recommended. DH

2007 Dr. Loosen Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Spätlese

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.
