S.A. Prum Riesling Essence Qualitatswein Mosel 2011
I had this wine at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse in New Orleans and it was very good!!! Definitely a keeper.
Very balanced Riesling. Aromatic and fruity with added minerality. Slightly sweet but not overbearing. Great with spicy foods or seafood.
External Reviews for S.A. Prum Riesling Essence Qualitatswein Mosel
Essence Riesling - Recommended, Bloomberg Business Week/ S.A. Prüm's 2009 Essence Riesling is a light, dry, and affordable white wine perfect for summer lunches... as an aperitif, and as an accompaniment to food. The explosive fruit on the front of the palate gives a strong impression of sweetness, but this is deceptive, and it disappears as the wine slips down, the bracing acidity asserting itself for a bright, crisp finish. Essence is redolent of ripe peaches and pears, which, combined with Riesling's wonderful aromatic minerality, results in a pure and inexpensive summer delight.
Essence Riesling 2008/ Lovely, perfumed lemon-flower and spice aromas; sweetly appealing Riesling fruit, fine balance, and good zip. A lot for the money.
/ With centuries of winemaking tradition to draw on and a wealth of distinctive grape varieties and grapegrowing terrain - Europe is still in the top tier when it comes to the values competition. Peachy-tasting and off-dry, these six German Rieslings feature low alcohol levels and crisp structures. They pair nicely with pork and also make excellent aperitifs.
/ Succulent flavors of pear and white peach are ripe and full in body, brought into focus by juicy acidity. It remains lively and bright on the persistent finish.
Essence Riesling 2008/ An open white, showing peach and pear flavors, with a hint of orange. Perks up, with bright acidity that keeps this fresh on the finish.
Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Kabinett 2006 - 89 Points, Wine Spectator Online/ Rich and lushly textured, with green tea, peach mango and mineral aromas and flavors. Nicely balanced, finishing drier than expected, given the richness up front.
Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Spatlese 2011 - 92 points, Wine Enthusiast/ While apple and lemon aromas are subdued in this remarkably complex off-dry Riesling, the palate is penetrating, with juicy peach and preserved quince flavors. The acidity is brisk and brash, highlighting a deeply mineral midpalate. Finishes long, with a slightly smoky touch.
