2008 Kruger-Rumpf Münsterer Rheinberg Riesling Kabinett Nahe 8.5% $20

Highest-rated German Riesling

This is very mineral on the nose, all potassium and almost metallic, with very clear, clean dried citrus zest notes over some Asian pear fruit. Has a lot of dissolved CO2 adding a bit of fizz in the mouth that helps to keep things fresh and nervous. Without the fizz, this is a bit sweet for a Kabinett, but it brings real depth of flavor to the table. With faint honey tones adding sweetness, this express pineapple, green apple, pear and peach notes that power through on the long finish. This is freaking delicious. Great mouth-freshening acidity and some intriguing melon notes on the long finish, which shows off that extreme minerality again on the finale. Sign me up! 91pts

    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.
