    Drunk over two days.
    I can confirm my assumptions and note from 2016. Well made Kabinett without great tension and excitement. Lacks a bit of acidity. Easy drinking. Will certainly go for another decade, but I doubt that it gets any better. 87-88

    May 17, 2016 - Glass: Riedel Vinum Riesling
    Drunk over multiple days.
    Clear, medium- golden color. Medium intense nose with ripe yellow fruit and some petrol.
    Off-dry, but more dry then sweet. This wine puzzles me. It is not really bad, but I expected much more. It has the 2009 vintage typical aromas of ripe fruit, but it lacks tension and shows clear signs of ageing with lots of petrol. It has acidity, but not as vibrant as I want it to be. So maybe I should simply accept that it is past peak? Quite unsual for a Zilliken Kabinett but it really feels like that. So drink it up now. My last bottle will follow in 2-3 years to prove my assumption :)

    October 8, 2011 - Wunderbar leichter, eleganter Kabinett, mineralisch und leichte Süße, passt hervorragend zu Curry Huhn :)
