Gunderloch Jean Baptiste Riesling Kabinett 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Gunderloch, a wine prince of the Rheinhessen, makes several late-harvest rieslings that very famous, sweet and expensive.This is the estate's *dry* Kabinett. "Mint, orange blossom and heliotrope delight the nose, setting up Gunderloch’s 2011 Riesling Kabinett Jean-Baptiste to deliver a soothingly polished, expansive mouthful of liquid floral perfume and almond cookie infusion backed by rather prominent sweetness in comparison with other recent editions of this cuvee. Admirably persistent, with a hint of alkalinity offering some counterpoint to its [somewhat] sweet personality."Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Gunderloch:
Our great - great grandfather, Carl Gunderloch, a banker from Mainz, founded the Gunderloch estate in 1890. He bought excellent grand cru vineyard sites, NACKENHEIM ROTHENBERG, and became one of the pioneers of quality wine making on the Rhine River. Agnes and Fritz Hasselbach have been managing the 30 acres of vineyards in Nackenheim and Nierstein since 1979 and are the fifth generation owners.

This wine was available at the Vancouver International Wine Festival. It has all the tart characteristics of a typical Nackenheim wine with sour apple nose and gooseberry on the palate. A very acceptable quaff with some evolution occurring in terms of gasoline notes. A worthy wine for summer sipping. 85 points.
