Robert Weil, Riesling Kabinett trocken, 2008

Posted by Torsten 10 Aug 2009

This dry Riesling is a very pleasant surprise. Not that I would not trust the Weil winery to make nice Riesling - but I had seriously planned to just have a glass of this tonight. Or perhaps two. Alas! my plan has been foiled.

To be blamed is a dry Riesling with clear, yellow colour (not too intense). The nose is very fresh, almost cool, with mineral vegetable-lemon and a fruity dose of peach. The wine itself is dry, but not too dry, with a really pleasant freshness that makes your tongue tingle.

It has all the good ingredients: mineral, citrus fruit and fresh acidity and something creamy too, all nicely balanced (the hint of vegetable is just right). Just immensely drinkable.
