This is a orange wine. In the first years of the new millenium Peter Jacob Kühn made a sharp course change. He worked onlyorganic and biodynamic, he operated with longer maceration for his Riesling. This 2004 Riesling is very Special, the colour is more orange than yellow (orange wine ;-)) the nose is much more phenolic than usal and on the palate you have on he one hand tertiary flavours like polish, wood and dried herbs, on the other hand there is a wonderful balanced acidity and the wine is in itself absolutely consistent; by the way: bonedry! This wine is not easy drinking at it's not a typical Riesling but this 2004 St. Nikolaus Riesling trocken (dry) is a very interesting and philosophic wine.
Magnum Only - Pre-Thanksgiving Dinner (O's House): From Magnum. Medium yellow colour. In the nose, there's some petrol, bright autumn fruit (quince, apple), some honey and strong herbal notes. It's very balanced and harmonic, much better than the 2003 which was much more highly rated by the critics. On the palate, it's tight, compact with bright acidity and fruit. Absolutely bone dry. Long finish.
