It has been some time since I tasted a German Riesling this good for the price. Apple blossom, lime and sweet clover rise from the glass, bringing to mind the Mosel. In the mouth, the exchange of slate and fruit acidity is positively shimmering. This sits delicately on the palate, yet saturates it with fruit, flowers, minerals in wet stone, and salt and quarry dust variations. Twenty-six grams of sugar are perfectly integrated, so that the wine displays only a hint of sweetness. The finish is so ingratiatingly fruity and invigoratingly mineral it spreads from ear to ear and simply compels the next sip - make that "gulp!"

A Kesseler 2009 Riesling Kabinett R represents the amalgamation of two previously discrete cuvees, namely a generic "Riesling R" and a generic Kabinett. At 10.5% alcohol and with balanced though obvious sweetness, it offers tart-edged, high energy refreshment and squeaky-clean expression of pineapple and fresh lime with pungent accents of ginger and candied lime peel. This should remain delightful for at least 6-8 years, although it is with ample justification meant for drinking young.

Big, ripe flavors of green pear and summer peach are kept lively by limelike acidity, giving this a sleek, zesty feel.

A juicy style, offering straightaway flavors of ripe peach and apple, with notes of lemon cream and spice. Rich herbal notes mark the broad finish. Drink now through 2016.

Driven by its mineral side, this white offers a mix of stone, pineapple, peach and grapefruit. Lively and balanced, lingering with a juicy, peppery finish. Drink now through 2016.
