Schmitges Riesling Spätlese Trocken Erdener Treppchen 2011

External Review:

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.

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
