    September 27, 2018 - sweet

    February 14, 2018 - I love German Riesling of all sorts but don't drink much of it. After drinking this, I really must rectify this situation. 8% ABV.

    Classic Mosel. Subtle nose of petrol and ripe pears; lovely crystalline pear on entry which carries through to a very pure slate character on the midpalate, sufficient apple acidity counterbalances the sweetness, good length. A joy with light Chinese food, vegetables.

    Note: this bottle has been sitting in a refrigerator for many years, and was under screwcap, so it is likely to have evolved a lot less than most other bottles.

    August 14, 2017 - On goute le sucre résiduel encore pas mal, un peu jeune en ce moment.
    Nez sur la citronelle, l'huile, le miel et les fleurs.
    En bouche, assez gras avec une acidité présente qui aide à faire passer le sucre, le miel revient avec une finale assez longue sur les minéraux.
    C'est bien mais sera encore mieux dans 3-5 ans.

    November 13, 2016 - {screwcap, 8%, AP 15 12} Pale colour; sweet, custard-tinged light stewed apple fruit. Very drinkable, very pleasant. Tastes a bit high yield, or at least dilute; there's not quite enough acid here in my view to keep it from slipping towards the flabby end of the spectrum. Light-bodied, off-dry. Pleasant but not outstanding.

    June 22, 2016 - Initial aromas and flavours of lime and petrol, but then powerful, deep peach, red apple, stewed apples, toffee, cinnamon, vanilla, citrus among many flavors. Superb length. Great wine. Not sure how/when it will change. Shouldn't change too much in the next 5 years, but after that? Who knows. Seems to have the depth and power for the long term. Much better at a warmer temperature when the flavours emerge.

    (Joh. Jos. Christoffel Ürziger Würzgarten Riesling Spätlese) ($27.00) Like the two Kabinetts, this is less taut but is actually just differently coiled; lavender and wisteria, a real séance of herbs and spices, darker flavors. *
