Karl Joh. Molitor Riesling Spätlese Hattenheimer 2007

Member Review by HB Carter:

Easy to drink, but much less sweet than a typical Spatlese. Light, easy finish with no after taste. Can be enjoyed alone, or with light meals.

    Just a great trocken spatlese to enjoy with a little Indian or Thai food. Great on it's own as well. Has enjoyable notes of lime zest, pear, and a chalky minerality. Nice balance of acid and sugar makes this very easy drinking. Good stuff.

    This is one of those rare wines that you don't soon forget. Deep gold color, tartrate crystals on the cork, beautiful nose, gobs of fruit, honey, lime and mineral notes, long finish, excellent acid balance and nice richness. I've been tasting German wines since the '71 vintage and must say that this is about as good as spatlese gets. Impressive. Caution- there are some corked bottles of this wine. My rating -- 97 --------- The Rheingau upholds its reputation.
