2008 Schloss Reinhartshausen Old Vines Riesling Rheingau 12% $18

Other Highly-rated Wines

Spicy and sweet on the nose, this is a bed of baked tangerine fruit doused with rosewater and chamomile. Light on entry, this is almost dusty on attack. It turns relatively well balanced with quince jam tones early on, followed by a hint of tangerine fruit, drops of lime and something vaguely biter on the back end that’s a cross between licorice and bitter orange. That admittedly sounds a bit nasty, but it’s really quite lovely. The vaguely biter licorice element extends across a moderately long finish. I like this. 88pts

    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.
