Cupcake Riesling 2011
The vines of the Mosel Valley are planted on nearly vertical fields that run down to the Mosel River itself. These vines are trained in heart shapes leaving the walls of the river valley covered with green hearts. Due to the steep inclines all the grapes are hand harvested. Once back at the crush pad the grapes are de-stemmed and gently pressed before undergoing a cool, slow fermentation with a Riesling specific yeast to accentuate the delicate flavors on this wine. The wine was then aged sur lie and stirred regularly for up to two months. This stirring process helps round out the body of the wine and creates the soft creamy notes that make this wine indisputably Cupcake.
Nice straw color, nice lime and lemon notes, good acid balance but a short finish. Slight honey--Pleasant wine that needs to be more extracted to be judged with the best QbAs. Very similar to their 2012 Mosel Riesling. Probably 1% RS. My rating 86.

External Reviews for Cupcake Riesling
Cupcake Riesling starts off with a nose that shows hints of ripe honeydew and lemon chiffon. It fills the palate with the flavors of creamy lemons, bright citrus fruits and just a hint of sweetness. Broad and full-bodied, it finishes with a zesty thirst quaffing zing that leaves the imbiber wanting another glass. It is reminiscent of a lemon cream cupcake.
