Lots of petrol. After decanting for an hour, this full bodied riesling has a wonderful finish and more developed body than the 2007. I bought the bottle in hopes of saving it for another 5 years, but we'll see how long I can hold out! If you don't like the petrol, go for the younger vintage. Edit: Well, I drank it -- the cork was seeping a little bit, so I figured I'd save it while I could. I think this bottle had less Petrol and it was remarkable how long the apply finish continued on the palatte. Was a great accompaniment to fresh black cherries.

This is a single vineyard estate located in the village of Karthäuserhof, a winemaking area dating back to the Romans. This estate makes wines exclusively from the Karthäuserhofberg vineyard, producing wines that are fresh, bright, and elegant in texture and fruit profile. These wines can age for decades, especially from this vintage.

"Feinherb" is a some what loosely defined style of off-dry German wine that is at once refreshing and approachable. This estate is the pre-eminent estate in the Rüwer region of Germany.

An intense aroma of petrol and green apples this wine is sure to please anyone who leans towards Reislings with progression of age.

Full of peaches and limes on the palate. Lithe, delicate and beautifully fresh today. Yes, it's true too that German wines, even at the Kabinett level, can age wonderfully for years to come.

A rock-solid kabinett from one of the Ruwer tributary’s most consistent producers. Modest notes of petrol, sea salt and geranium are supported by absolute purity of fruit and showy slate.

Lightly off-dry with bright rays of apricot acidity. Sang Vineyard used to be one site, but the Tyrells, one of Germany's most respected winemaking families merged all their holdings into one - "Karthäuserhofberg." Probably the most aristocratic Riesling you'll have. Demonstrating tranquil evolution and at an ideal level now. Perfect with goose, pork sausages and homemade schupfnudeln dumplings.
