A touch on the herbal side, yet this shows intensity and verve for the vintage with smoky, mineral shadings overlaying the peach and almond notes. Lovely balance and energy. Drink now through 2010.
This wine is a stunning example of how great German wine can be. Full and lush, with complex flavors of sweet, over-ripe, peaches and a long finish carried by intense acidity.
Ripe black cherry, black currant and lime aromas followed by juicy, luscious fruit on the palate. Quite sweet (ldquo;How else to keep down the alcohol?rdquo; asks Schug), but manages an appropriate lightness of touch and shows plenty of slate, salt and spice in a quite invigorating finish. One seems to taste here the advantages of Bernkastelrsquo;s soils in retaining moisture. Potential 2 stars.
This is so rich and ripe it sits hunkered down in the glass, needing time to unfold. When it does, the flavors of red-blushed peaches and minerals are layered so deeply the taste holds on for minutes after each sip. It ends dry and refreshing, a terrific match for orange-glazed chicken.
