 Tasted by wineshlub on 7/24/2014 & rated 92 points: Popped and poured. Sweet aroma of brown sugar and flowers. Rich flavors of peach, minerals, touch of petrol. Lingering and beautiful peach almond finish.

Slightly quirky, but delicious, flavors. On the sweet side of the Kabinett spectrum. Good balance, a little soft but tolerably so. Great structure. Going strong, should continue to develop. (580 views)
 Tasted by Matt Scott on 2/16/2013 & rated 91 points: Pure petrol, almond, orange chicken, lemon grass and chalk. Lively acidity and a tapered, yet soft palate. Very refreshing and striking. Drink now - 2024. (1510 views)
 Tasted by StefanAkiko on 6/8/2012 & rated 88 points: Mastodont: Mosel from 2009 (Hemmavid): Non-Blind. Had immediately.
Coming from the previous wines, the nose job here becomes one of detecting kerosene... Overly distinct kerosene on the nose affects also the palate in an almost foul way. However, on the palate this wine manages to maintain interesting aspects. A very interesting wine... (1899 views)
 Tasted by jkline on 7/26/2011: Not sure how to score. Overwhelming sulphur nose. But man, on the palate this thing is racy..... but still balanced, soft and smooth. hoping the sulpher burns off. (2193 views)
 Tasted by jahlove on 6/1/2011: Pure Mosel deliciousness. Nothing additional to add to what's already here except that there was a note of car exhaust that I get a lot of times with young JJs. Incredible value with nothing but upside. I believe this is definitely an undervalued offering. (2333 views)
 Tasted by jkline on 11/20/2010 & rated 92 points: I agree with john gilman--- deep and complex nose of delicious apples, peaches, orange blossoms and gentle bass notes of slate and petrol. On the palate the wine is medium-bodied, crisp and juicy, with a lovely core of fruit, fine filigree and impressive length.

on the 2nd day the sweetness mellowed out and became crisp and limey. (2376 views)
 Tasted by Badfish on 10/30/2010 & rated 90 points: Oktoberfest: 2009 Germans (Wine Exchange - Orange, CA): Superb delicate tones on the nose here with notes of soft citrus, minerals, and sulfur. On the palate there is a sweet texture, solid acid tension, and great density. The flavors are complex with notes of stone fruits, funk, and heady stones through the finish. This wine is in a brutally embryonic stage but it has a lot of potential. (2166 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.
