Other Highly-rated Wines

Lots of development on the nose. It is full of slightly dank, musty oil and diesel scents at first, which are oddly appealing. With time, some fruit and a nice brushy, oily wood tone emerge. This is fairly sweet at first, but the acid really unfurls and gives the sugar a run for its money. This is very lively in the mouth for such a noticeably sweet wine. The fruit is much more prominent on the palate. Lime topped creamy pineapple and pear fruit up front turn tauter on the back end with lively pineapple notes and a slight steely edge. The finish has some nice dusty mineral notes that add a top layer over a light, honied sweetness and lime juice freshness. Delicious. 89pts

    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.
