Max Ferd Richter Zeppelin Mülheimer Sonnenlay Riesling Kabinett 2007
Rich for a Kabinett, with ripe peaches, honeydew melon and lime-drizzled papaya. Explosive fruit flavors and just hints of the Mosel's signature mineral on the crisp finish. With its medium body and ripe, powerful fruit, this Riesling drinks more like a Spätlese. Great vintage for German Riesling.Add winemaker's notes

Rich for a Kabinett, with ripe peaches, honeydew melon and lime-drizzled papaya. Explosive fruit flavors and just hints of the Mosel's signature mineral on the crisp finish. With its medium body and ripe, powerful fruit, this Riesling drinks more like a Spätlese. Great vintage for German Riesling.
The quality of Richter's wine has been "sky high" since the '20s, when Rieslings from the estate were featured on the Graf Zeppelin. This wine was bottled as a tribute to those glory days - fruity, spicy, with brilliant pear, citrus and apple flavors that finish with crisp, tasty acidity.
There's snap to this white, but the apple, mineral and spice flavors could use more intensity. Drink now through 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
Wines from this vineyard were served on the zeppelin airships of yesteryear as depicted on the label. Light and juicy, this Riesling displays ripe apple and sweet lemon and finishes with a note of slate that this vineyard is known for.
The flavors of this wine will make you think of crunching into a crisp Granny Smith apple. A little sweetness followed by tart acidity provides a nice fruity balance. Finishing with a light minerality, this wine is a great everyday sipper to pair with light snacks and seafood.
This famous label commemorates the era of the Zeppelin, when first class passengers were poured Riesling from the small village of Mulheim. Today, Mulheim resident Dirk Richter produces this terrific value-priced white, slightly sweet with intense white peach and citrus flavors and a crisp, refreshing finish.
Slaty character typical for the vineyard. Its wines were served on the Zeppelin in the '20s and '30s. Very refreshing Riesling, displaying rich fruit of apple and lemon with a stylish and lengthy finish. A great sipping or aperitif wine, or with light dishes like seafood or poultry.
