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.

Compared to the monster wine of 2007, the 2008 Jean Baptiste is a more classic Kabinett with a touch of sweetness perfectly balanced by cracking acidity. At just 10,5%, it's a perfect allround Riesling for almost any occasion. Goes really well with curry dishes.

Big for a kabinett, yet round and juicy, with a vibrant cast to its peach and mineral flavors. Picks up a spicy note on the finish. Drink now through 2005.

Though this has richness and balance, the flavors could be more vivid and focused. Light peach and apple flavors show moderate length. Drink now through 2012.

Pure, focused nectarine, apricot and grapefruit flavors are matched to vivid acidity and a bright, refreshing finish. Drink now through 2019.

Fritz Hasselbach, owner of Weingut Gunderloch, is not only one of the premier producers of the Rheinhessen, he's also incredibly dedicated to making wines of terroir. The red, iron-rich soils show through on the palate. Off-dry on the palate, full of peaches and yellow plums.

Winemaker's Notes:

Gunderloch Riesling Kabinett "Jean Baptiste" 2012 is a lively German white that offers lovely fruit, floral and mineral aromas on the nose. On the palate, delicious fruit, citrus and honey flavors with a refreshing finish."Features a racy edge to the apple, green peach and citrus flavors. This is lithe and fresh-tasting. Crisp acidity lends zesty purity and verve to the finish." -KM, Wine Spectator (90 Points)
