Schmitges Riesling Spätlese Erdener Prälat 2007
Slightly bubbly in the glass. Golden yellow color. Not too pronounced on the nose. A bit of rubber and red apples on nose with a bit of mineral. In mouth, honey and orange. A bit sweet for a Kabinett. The acidity balances the wine, but it is relatively low for what I would expect.
Golden straw her, aromas of yellow stone fruits , wet rock and minerals, dominant minerality on the palate with lemon lime, peach and green apple, balanced to a long finish.
pale lemon color very small, fine bubbles (not sure what that's about); meyer lemon, honeysuckle, other floral notes and minerals on the nose; medium body with much more sweetness than I expect from a kabinett, but decent acidity to balance -- not exactly what I expected, but not a bad wine
External Reviews for Schmitges Riesling Spätlese Erdener Prälat
God bless the German vintners who toil constantly to create wines that are honestly, uncompromisingly, and lovingly crafted. Despite what many people think, some German wines are indeed dry - and yes, this is one of them. It's fantastic and fruit-driven, with classic Riesling citrus on the palate. "Grauschiefer" refers to the grey slate soil of the area, which imparts a grounding of food-friendly minerality to this exceptional wine.
