This is maturing, off-dry Mosel riesling with an intense nose of burnt match, honey, pineapple and apple sauce notes....

Outstanding Riesling for the money. Apple cider, lime juice, honey. Almost has a slight botrytis/Sauternes dimension. A slight superfine spritz. Sweetish but dry. Long finish. Totally refreshing. I can't imagine anyone not liking this.

A glass or two of this and a dozen oysters on the half shell would be heaven.

Negatives: None

This wine is starting to come of age but you will be rewarded for cellaring this wine for another 10 years. Drink on its own or it will pair nicely with BBQ pork ribs.

Tasted: 21 Feb 12

Score: 9/10, Value: 9.5/10, Total: 18.5/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 4

Peach, mineral notes, slight effervescence that provides the creaminess in tasting. Very nice to drink by itself and a good value.

Perfect Mosel it maybe but no way is it Medium Dry. Anyone not familiar with what a classic Mosel wine taste's like will get a shock from this if they expecting anything other than a sweet german riesling of the Black Tower, Blue Nun Ilk.
