Reichsgraf Von Kesselstatt Riesling Kabinett Piesporter Goldtröpfchen 2007
Seems almost confectionary in its bold, fruit-driven aromas of spring flowers, strawberries and lime, but picks up greater minerality and some petrol notes on the slightly creamy-texture palate. Long and fruit-driven on the finish.Add winemaker's notes

Seems almost confectionary in its bold, fruit-driven aromas of spring flowers, strawberries and lime, but picks up greater minerality and some petrol notes on the slightly creamy-texture palate. Long and fruit-driven on the finish.
A lovely, straightforward kabinett with flinty apple and melon aromas and flavors. Medium to light body, lightly sweet and light on the finish.
Racy and almond-flavored, with the telltale Mosel "cut" of firm acidity, here's a straightforward, resonant white ending on a crisp note. Best from 2002 through 2006.
This bottle proves that a quality Piesporter can compete quite well with the more famous vineyard sites. The nose is marked by lush peach and a tight bundle of other flavors trying to emerge. On the palate, lime and mineral provide an interesting and refreshing contrast to the ripe flavors picked up on the nose. Drink this wine now for the freshness and complexity that it's already showing, or drink it in a few years when the nose is sure to become more elegant and complex.
A floral style, with rose, violet and apricot aromas and flavors. Rich and round, on a light-bodied frame, it's very open and accessible, with a long finish. Drink now through 2010.
A focused white, this delivers clearly defined aromas and flavors of apple and slate, and zingy acidity. has a sleek, almost transparent profile. Drink now through 2004.
It isn't a mistake that the best vineyard in Piesport is called "gold drops." This vineyard, more than any other in the Mosel, yields wines with pre essence of Riesling fruit and honey flavors. At home with a variety of foods, this wine is probably best enjoyed by itself, where the delightful flavors can be appreciated in all their glory.
