- > Mosel Saar Ruwer
Community Tasting Notes 8
April 10, 2014 - Just a small sip. Ap #31. Beautiful. Not quite youthful. So long. Got just two small but marvelous sips.

April 8, 2013 - Agree with latest tastingnotes. This is very good right now. Intense and poised, long and lovely! Texture is very watery, not the least creamy. Excellent!

March 7, 2013 - Stunning wine. Better than last time tried. No off nose this time and slightly sweeter. Golden yellow in color. Nice nose of peach, lychee, steel and a hint of petrol. Smooth balanced palate of honey, peach, steel, chalk and a tad of petrol. Nice sweetness that went well with spicy Sechuan cooking. Long finish.

September 4, 2012 - Very pretty; a basket of fresh peaches, apples and other ripe orchard fruits tinged with honey, floral notes and just a faint tinge of sulfur that still lingers (though this was double decanted a few hours before being served.) It's incredibly youthful though with the fruit still very rich and the acidity barely perceptible beneath the sweetness. I imagine this will be a lot more enjoyable with time once the youthful sweetness starts to fade a bit, but right now it's really primary and more about potential than anything else.

May 11, 2010 - a rich, sweet, velvety Riesling that has years to go. Too bad I have only 2 more bottles in the cellar. The sweetness cut through the acidity and richness of the beets and nuts in the salad...well-matched.
