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
Pale yellow. Attractive aromas of apple, acacia blossom and hazelnut. Creamy papaya fruit and supple texture are nicely brightened by a refined acidity. High-toned and pleasingly spicy on the finish.
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.
Subtle and elegant, with lovely pear, citrus and lingering pineapple fruit coupled with zesty acidity.
This Riesling from the Saar Valley in Germany is well worth the price. The minerality is strong from aroma through the complex finish. Apricot, lychee, and pear fruit hold their own next to the massive mineral presence. There is just the slightest hint of very ethereal and elegant botrytis. Imagine the smell and taste of drying, freshly-cut hay coated with honey, and let yourself return to the summers of your past while enjoying this standout Riesling from the outstanding 2005 vintage.
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.
Like being enveloped in a soft pillow of flowers and talc, this Riesling wields its peach, vanilla and mineral flavors on a delicate framework. It's smoothness hides the underlying acidity, but it's there. Terrific slate finish. Drink now through 2010.
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.
