Very ripe apricot and nectarine aromas and flavors mark this bold kabinett, whose honeyed sweetness is balanced by a lively structure. Good lingering finish. Drink now through 2008.
The sensual 2002 Riesling Kabinett Gleisweiler Hlle displays flowers, herbs, and stones in its aromatic profile. Softly-textured, spicy, and lush, it regales the palate with pears, herbal teas, pepper, and red currants. This harmonious, full-flavored offering should be drunk over the next 6-7 years.
Rich aromas of flint, stones and notes of rye are found in the nose of the satin-textured, light to medium-bodied 2003 Riesling Kabinett Gleisweiler Hlle. A supple, forward effort, it offers an expressive, seamless flavor profile of rye-laced apples in a broad, generous style. Drink this fine value over the next 5 years.
Honeyed white peach and orchid-like sweet floral aromas eloquently evoke the ripeness of the vintage. Quince jelly and nut oil flavors saturate the palate. The high ripeness is backed by concomitantly generous residual sugar and creaminess of texture, yet the overall effect is vivacious and delicate enough to merit the designation Kabinett. There is transparency here to many nuances of flavor. A spectacular balance of fruit and mineral has been achieved.
