Honey, citrus, green apple and lemon drop. Sweet but with a crisp acidity. I think it could use a bit more time in the bottle.
External Reviews for Reichsgraf Von Kesselstatt Riesling Spätlese Josephshöfer
Sharp and crisp, the nose presents traces of minerality paired with citrus fruits such as lime, pear and peach. The body is smooth, and offsets the heavy acidity with a touch of honey and vanilla. Perfect pairing for grilled seafood, or a great wine to enjoy on a summer evening.
Exuding a fennel, green tea and almond flavor profile, this bracing '99 Mosel exhibits plenty of slate, with a lingering finish. Well done. Drink now through 2006.
Ethereal aromas of lime and spring wildflowers introduce this rich, deftly balanced Spätlese, then apple and lime flavors glide across the palate. Absolutely delicious now, but should age well too.
Here's a surprisingly loveable Scharzhofberger riesling, which smells cold and mineral yet sends out clear, soft peach and Rainier cherry flavor. Those flavors resonate so long it's easy to miss the minerality, which is substantial as the hill itself. Delicious and long-lived.
A lush, voluminous Riesling, with ripe apricot, lime and mineral lurking in the background. The structure is apparent from midpalate through finish, suggesting this needs more time to integrate. Best from 2006 through 2016.
Seductive, bursting with succulent line and apricot aromas and flavors accented by white pepper. In the mouth, it's rich and racy until the refreshing acidity ushers in a long, multidimensional finish. Great stuff. Drink now through 2010.
Tangy, with lime, nectarine, vanilla custard and mineral notes in a rainbow of flavors. Well-structured, though the acidity is submerged now, with a lingering, vanilla-tinged finish. Drink now through 2018.
