Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90(+?)

($42) Highly aromatic nose combines apricot, orange peel, quinine and ginger. Fatter and sweeter than the 2001 but less precise and less obviously structured. But this is classic rich, dry riesling with good stony underpinning. Began slightly reduced but seemed to grow brighter and livelier as it opened in the glass. Carrying six grams of sugar but also considerably higher acidity than the 2001 bottling.

Wine Varietal: Riesling

Styles of Riesling range from bone-dry to very sweet. Riesling thrives in cooler climates with plenty of sun exposure and protection from the wind. Along the Mosel River in Germany and in France's region of Alsace, this variety has seen historic success. Riesling is also grown in Austria, Luxembourg, northern Italy, Australia, New Zealand, United States, and Canada. There are many grape names that use the term "Riesling" which are not true Riesling such as Welschriesling, Schwarzriesling, Cape Riesling, and Gray Riesling. White Riesling, also known as Johannisberg Riesling, is true Riesling. Typical descriptors for the varietal include apple, pear, peach, apricot, petrol, flint, steel, and gunmetal.
