For such a good vintage and good wine region, this wine has serious problems. It tastes as if it were 20 years old. Somewhat oxidized and lacking fruit, this wine is over the hill. Could easily be a storage or transport issue. This wine should have never reached the customer for sale. It has no value. Oxidized nose with little fruit coming thru. Don't waste your time. My rating -- 70
Awful - agree with the previous review that this tastes very oxidized. Very acidic, bad flavor. Not at all like a traditional Riesling, more like a very bad Chardonnay or Pinot gris. Will ruin a dinner party - do not serve to guests.
Lightly floral nose - nice acidity and peach notes. Fairly sweet, and comes over as rounded as a result. Certainly very off-dry. Real wet pebble taste - nice
Sweet with a nice apple taste. Apricot finish on the palate.
Sweet balance. Honey/pear flavors....Recommended to break white zin habit. Can stand alone, with dessert, or fruit. great wine for price tag.
closest year I could find on this piece of shit web site. 2009 is sweet, as one would suspect, but well tempered with just enough dryness. I like it. Not a value pick up, but not expensive either.
Food Pairings for Edition Maximilian Riesling Spätlese
<p>This pale yellow wine has a subtle, yet fragrant, floral aroma. Similarly its taste is rather mellow, consisting mostly of sweet honey, pear, and lemon zest which end in a fruity finish. Best served on its own or with fruit, sorbet, and spicy foods.</p>
