Rich without being overly sweet, this wine’s aromas are redolent of dried apricots, with a hint of shiitake mushroom as well. Gingery spice balances the honeyed richness on the palate, and extends through the long finish.
Notes of marmalade, spice, wax and lanolin intertwine gorgeously on the nose and palate of this penetrating, complex Riesling. Tasting unabashedly sweet and honeyed, this features a note of bitter orange rind and intense tangerine-like acidity, making it mouthwatering and sippable.
This offering from the Mosel’s most hallowed site starts off thick and unctuous in the mouth, yet lacks the persistence and intensity of flavor exhibited by some of its 2006 counterparts. Still, the aromas and flavors present a gorgeous mix of dried apricot, ripe pear and melon with touches of honey and restrained minerality.
Sweet and fruity, loaded with melon, peach, grapefruit, apricot and pineapple. There’s also a hint of honey. It’s a pretty, well-made wine that ultimately just doesn’t seem to have the concentration needed to score higher.
