The 2012 Rosewood Select Series Süssreserve Riesling is made such that some fresh, unfermented juice is added before bottling in order to increase the overall freshness. The wine has intense aromas of lemon and lemon zest, green apple and wet stone minerality. It is a light to medium bodied, medium sweet (perceivably ‘off-dry’ due to acidity), fruity wine; balanced with crisp acidity and a medium to long, refreshing - zest filled finish. It is food friendly and quite enjoyable to be sipped on-its-own; drink now to 2016+. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89 pts – recommended based on both, quality and value. Tasted Nov/13.

This is proving to be a consistently decent performer and considering the price, very good value. I enjoyed the 2012 as much as the 2010. This sussreserve shows a slight green tinge as it sits in the glass. Off dry, good fruit in the citrus and apple range, a seam of acidity provides some structure. Nice length. All the elements for a good Niagara riesling (with a little unfermented juice thrown in the bargain). Paired up very well with mildly spiced Thai food. 88-89 points. Dec. 2013.
