2008 Selbach-Oster Kabinett Riesling

October 18, 2011 in What I am drinking

Appearance: Clear wine, light straw yellow in color with little viscosity almost to sheeting on the glass.
Nose: Green apple, peach, wet slate/minerality, and a waxiness that reminded me of a box of crayons.
Palate:  Off dry with light body.  Apples, peaches, and minerality come through here as well.  The acidity is there and refreshing, almost to the point that the wines seems like it has some bubbles to it.  Very well balanced.
Notes:  This was a delicious bottle of wine.  The initial attack of sweet green apples and peaches gave way to the minerality and acidity that smoothed out and covered you entire mouth on the mid-palate before transitioning to a decent finish.  If you are not a white wine fan or have never had a German Riesling you won’t be disappointed by this bottle of wine.  If you are a fan of the Mosel or Terry Theise imported wines already you most likely don’t need my recommendation to know that this is a bottle to try.
Price Range: $20-$25
