This wine was a great accompaniment for korean wings and super bowl. Still very pale and young. Somewhat dumb and broad shouldered at this point in it's evolution. Refreshing and classically dry, with stony crunch, and stone fruit flavors. These are quite good now with plenty of room to run and improve.
Very pale in hue. Beguiling nose of fresh peaches, apricots and citrus layered with wet slate and touches of floral and spice character. Palate shows apple and lemon-lime citrus. The wine is light in body, with medium sweetness checked by well-integrated acidity. The muscular nose contrasts nicely with the roundness and open texture of the palate. Drink or hold.
HDH Holiday Wine Tasting (HDH Offices - Chicago IL): Tasting, brief note. Papaya and ripe stone fruit gives this a ripe and tropical aromatic start.. While the same flavors profile comes through on palate, the wine is very well balanced giving an almost weightless, elegant texture that I find rare and exceptional for a wine at this price. Good now, but with the stuffing to age gracefully.
HDH holiday tasting (Chicago, IL): White fruits all the way here. There's a really exotic hint of spiciness (lychees and lemongrass) on the nose, and the ripeness of the vintage plays very well with the Pruem style. Surprisingly open and approachable now (as we all know the reputation, which more and more seems to me as part of "received knowledge" rather than based on actual experience -- young Pruem has been getting more and more accessible). Not the highest acid you will find on a riesling, but impeccably balanced with the sweet fruit and spice.
