Monday, July 9, 2012 - Had this with the 2008 kabinett last week. I liked the kabinett better, no doubt because of the racier acidity in the 2008 vintage. The spatlese is a 'classic' 2009, quite ripe, and indeed a little too much so for my tastes. But there's no doubting it is very tasty as well, with lots of apricots and some tropical notes too. Will the 2009s lose all this fruit and become more balanced in the future? I wonder... Solid wine for sure, just a little too ripe for my tastes (B+).
