J.&.H.A. Strub Niersteiner Riesling Kabinett Premier L 2001

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Almost dry-seeming (a conscious effort on the part of the importer), this wine is a great bargain. (Keep in mind yoursquo;re getting 33% more than in a 750-ml bottle.) Although a bit quiet on the nose, the flavors are zippy and pure, blending limes and peaches with a minerally, graphite note and a chalky finish.

Demure floral and mineral aromas can be discerned in the nose of the 2001 Riesling Kabinett Niersteiner. Produced only in 1-liter bottles, this unbeatable value bursts on the palate with limestone, limes, lemons, and white flowers. Fresh, zesty, and broad, it is a light to medium-bodied wine with excellent focus. Harvested at a Spauml;tlese Oeschle level, it has admirable depth of fruit to match its vibrant acidity. Since it will not be negatively affected to short-term contact with air, this is the perfect choice for a white to keep opened in the refrigarator as an occasional apeacute;ritif. Drink it over the next 4ndash;5 years.

Clean, refreshing and bursting with citrus and apple notes. Itrsquo;s a little on the tart side, but perfect to whet the appetite. Drink now through 2007.

The Strub liter of Niersteiner Kabinett is yet another great value from the Terry Theise Portfolio. The grapes were actually harvested at Spauml;tlese quality levels, yielding a very juicy, intense and flavorful Riesling that is carried by gentle acidity. Although this wine could accompany a wide variety of cuisine, I prefer it chilled, on its own.

One-third each Paterburg Spauml;tlese and two different Bruuml;ckchen Spauml;tlesen. One gets excellent Riesling Spauml;tlese labeled as Kabinett and sold at Liter-wine prices. the wine tastes dry, and the Paterberg aroma really blazes through, but the thick fruit of Bruuml;ckchen is chalky, stony and ideal for the ripe body of this wonderful wine. It follows the chalky profile of earlier vintages but with the chunky salivate-o-rama fruit of 2001.
