Pale yellow. Bright aromas of peach, pine nut and lemon oil. Elegant apple fruit kept light by good balancing acidity. Easy to drink.
A cheesy, yeasty ldquo;Mosel stinkrdquo; on the nose of Richterrsquo;s 2009 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett did not entirely blow off during the time I could devote to it, but the rest of the scents and flavors that emerged were virtuous: bright lemon; pungent spice; and suggestions of salt and stone, all in a buoyant and ultimately highly refreshing context. A return visit will hopefully find the nose cleared up here, and I suspect the wine has at least 12ndash;15 year potential. The plot in question mdash; for more about whose peculiarities, consult other reports I have written on Richterrsquo;s wines mdash; has an excellent track record in his hands.
This starts with aromatic floral notes, but doesnrsquo;t carry through on the palate. It tastes dilute, with modest fruit and a short finish. Drink now through 2006.
A racy, full-bodied wine offering a very floral nose with peach and grapefruit flavors. The acidity in this semi-dry Riesling makes for a perfect complement to mustard based sauces as well as white meat dishes.
A 2005 Graacher Himmelreich Riesling Kabinett smells and tastes of black currant, cherry, and lemon, is fine, bright, and invigorating on the palate, and manages that special 2005 trick of evincing substantial richness and sheer extract while being light to the touch and uplifting in the finish. There is admirable purity of fruit on display here along with salt and wet stone manifestations of the Mosel.
It comes from a high-elevation vineyard closer in microclimate to neighboring Bernkastel than is the rest of the Himmelreich. Grapefruit and black currant aromas and juicy fruit flavors. Very clear and refreshing, with its eight grams of acid among the highest of the wines here today. Manages poise, delicacy and lift despite carrying significantly more alcohol that would be the Richter Kabinett norm.
Flavors reminiscent of peaches and apricots accented by scents of freshly picked wild flowers. Delicate and light with sleek acidity and a sweetness that does not become cloying.
