Schäfer-Fröhlich Riesling Kabinett Bockenauer 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sulfured up the wazoo. This smells like a tractor barn. This needs plenty of air to clean up and even after an hour of air the sulfur remains an element, though it is joined by floral and citrus pith aromas. This needs plenty of time to clean up and become drinkable. Once it does, it shows a nice bright, fresh character with plenty of peachy fruit framed with citrus and sweet apple tones. It's sweet for a Kabinett, but not too powerful, and the acidity keeps this vibrant in the mouth.The finish is cleansing and shows admirable purity of green apple and baked citrus fruits that linger, along with a hint of honeyed sweetness. Tough to score this today, catch it without enough air and it's a mess, but given time to breath it cleans up nicely and shows some juicy richness. 88pts
