Zilliken Forstmeister Geltz Riesling Kabinett Saarburger Rausch 2003

Member Review by jaye:

Flabby, one dimensional and not very exciting. Not worth the $15 and change I paid. Very disappointing for a German Riesling. I am hoping it is just this one bottle. I have another so I will try again later this year.

My previous experience with this particular wine was very disappointing, so I thought I would try my last bottle. This one had a little more excitement upon opening because of some lovely frizzante which was missing on the other bottle. The fragrance is reminscent of lemon peel with a little stone. The flavor combines papaya and apricots with some bitter lemon on the finish. Clearly superior to the last bottle of this I had, but still not very exciting. It is missing the mouth-puckering acidity that makes Rieslings from this region so wonderful.
