Every now and again I get a hankering for a German kabinet quality wine. This spatlese scheurebe is rare and at $20 turned out to be terrific value. Overall impression is one of sweetness, with robust aromas of tropical fruit, apricot, and honey. The subdued acidity could be accounted for by the tartaric acid crystals. In a word: "Yummy". It went well with smoked salmon and gouda cheese appetizers, and could stand alone as a dessert wine. I gave it a 90 because I am a sucker for this style of wine and the uniqueness grabbed me too.

A developing nose of intense apricot, peach, and honeyed ripeness. The palate is of medium sweetness, has structured acidity, fuller body and intense flavours of cantaloupe and apricot, with a hint of ginger spice and orange pith. The finish is long lived. (Feb 2011)
