2010 Turn Me Riesling Rheinhessen Germany 9.5% $10

Top Value

This smells a bit sweet and reminiscent of cooked peaches/apricot jam with some fennel seed top notes.  Sweetish on entry, but really quite well balanced, with just enough acid to keep this from being soft but too much as to disturb the gentle sweet impression. The flavors in the mouth are also a bit cooked, but are much more in the citrus end of the spectrum. Some nice floral and green spice notes emerge with time. This is sweet and simple and everything wine experts loath about cheap Riesling, but it is delicious and well balanced. While not the freshest, it does a fine job of expressing its fruit.  87pts

    Glad to hear that Reinhartshausen has made it onto your list. My last visit there in 2009 was a bit disappointing and not showing what they are capable of doing. They had some really spectacular wines from the 1971 vintage until fairly recently. Let's hope they are back on track. Their 1983 Erbacher Siegelsberg Auslese was a monumental wine.
