Heinz Eifel Shine Riesling Mosel 2013
Heinz Eifel Riesling Kabinett is made from very ripe Riesling grapes from the middle of the Mosel Valley of Germany. Weather conditions in June were much better and the bloom was completed by mid-end of the month. Exudes flavors and aromas of peaches and citrus. A well-balanced young, fresh, fruity wine with crisp acidity. Its slight sweetness makes it a perfect math with aged cheeses, chicken and cream sauces.
Editorial Reviews for Heinz Eifel Shine Riesling Mosel
White holiday spice and fig aromas with tea leaf and banana on the nose. Bordering on off-dry, this is still a dry wine with a hint of sweetness driven by white grape and peach juice, allspice and star anise.
Quite perfumed with notes of quince, fig and honeysuckle. Rather straightforward in the mouth with good acidity and modest sweetness supporting mineral-based apple fruit that takes on a hint of spice on the modest finish. 84pts
Sweet but not to sweet. Has a fruity flavor and a hint of peach to it
A dull wine, uninspired and uninspiring. It does not have even faint memories of a German riesling. It is light-bodied, but the flavours are not there. This should not sell for more than $4 a bottle.
