 Tasted by BurgAndy on 9/1/2013: Drinking great. Deceptively tropical on the nose with aromas of fruit cocktail, melon, lychee, and citrus. It is lean on the palate and quite chiseled. Lots of white stone fruit and citrus. Finishes bone dry, little RS -- that's just awesome. (705 views)
 Tasted by Henman on 2/16/2012 & rated 88 points: Rather closed fruit on the nose. Dry, good vibrant acidity, elegant citrus and apple flavors.Very nice. (1401 views)
 Tasted by sleepyhaus on 12/12/2011: This is really more off-dry than truly dry. Otherwise it is a good value in an (almost) dry riesling. Nicely aromatic and with good acidity, this is textbook food-friendly and can span a lot of cuisines. (1522 views)
 Tasted by BurgAndy on 12/3/2011: Lunch at Momofuku Noodle Bar with Good Friends (NYC): Dry, crisp, and lean and drinking real nicely. Tight citrussy nose followed by wonderful pucker-inducing acidic citrus and lychee. Great with the kimchee and pickles. (1657 views)
 Tasted by vinidri on 6/18/2011 & rated 88 points: Excellent riesling for the price. Nice peach and citrus fruits, fresh. Long nice finish. (1683 views)
 Tasted by avp on 5/28/2011: Pretty consistent notes. Luminous pale lemon yellow.
Ripe primary to peachy fruit, slate character, citrus, honey. Refreshing, balanced sweetness, lime, a touch of salt liquorice, long finish. Good. (1311 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 5/7/2011: Opened and poured, not as dry, nor as precise as I expected, sweet soda type notes with some traces of minerals, disappointing (1182 views)
 Tasted by avp on 1/13/2011: Fruity nose of appley, citrusy and peachy fruit. Smoky slate aromatics, honeyed florals and herbaceous notes.
Dry, crispy and fruity on the palate with very nice intensity for the price point. Some peppery spiciness, herbs and a load of minerality. Lengthy citrusy finish.
Very nice (esp. for an entry level wine). (1316 views)
 Tasted by kuumies on 12/28/2010 & rated 90 points: Once again crisp, well structured and full of tropical fruit. Quite powerful and acidic, and yet delightfully light and enjoyable at the same time. The fruit doesn't seem quite as pure as when I last tried this but still excellent pairing for a creamy salmon dish. (1690 views)
 Tasted by kuumies on 9/17/2010 & rated 91 points: Very young at the moment. Acidity loses aggressiveness as the wine gets some air. Already fairly balanced wine that will only get better with time. A good deal of complexity, wonderful fruit with delicious minerality. Will definitely buy more. (1783 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 7/5/2010 & rated 85 points: Very young and crispy fresh. Soft citrus and fresh green apples in the bouquet as well as the taste. Minerals. (1555 views)
 Tasted by Oh Dae-su on 6/21/2010 & rated 85 points: A pure flower meadow, still a bit reserved (might be better in some months), astounding complexity for standard stuff, Good QPR (1618 views)
 Tasted by Wim de Leeuw on 5/18/2010: Bleekgeel, stuivend frisse mineraliteit, iets rokerig. Geweldig zuiver. Crispy en strak. (1608 views)

Mosel Saar Ruwer

Starting in 2007 the German wine authorities have changed labeling laws to rename all of the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer wines to just "Mosel." This puts this and other database driven sites in a difficult spot, as millions of old wine label reflect the former labeling. As described here, CellarTracker has elected to remain with the old labeling for a number of years to avoid confusion. At some point we will switch over to just "Mosel" but not for a few years at least.
