Cupcake Riesling Mosel Valley 2012
From Germany's famed Mosel Valley, our Riesling delights with aromas of ripe honeydew and lemon chiffon. The broad and full-bodied wine fills the palate with creamy lemon, bright citrus and a hint of sweetness, finishing with a zesty thirst-quenching zing. Cultivated on steep inclines in the Mosel Valley, these grapes are hand-picked, then de-stemmed and gently pressed. We use a Riesling-specific yeast in a cool and slow fermentation to accentuate delicate flavors. By aging the wine sur lie and stirring it regularly for up to two months, we impart roundness to the body and create soft, creamy notes.
I was a bit surprised that this QbA was enjoyable. Nice fruit, good acid, 1% RS. Nice citrus and mineral. Excellent value. Lacks classic German Riesling perfume nose but still enjoyable. My rating -- 86.
I was a bit surprised that this Pfalz QbA was enjoyable. Nice fruit, good acid, 1% RS. Nice citrus and mineral. Excellent value. Lacks classic German Riesling perfume nose but still enjoyable. Not as much acid as their Mosel. My rating -- 86.
