Adolph Mueller, Niersteiner Gutes Domtal Kabinett Riesling 2011, Rheinhessen, Germany
Tasting Note: Medium-intensity gold in color, this wine has an aromatic nose of quince, bruised lychee, fresh pear slice, pineapple puree with hints of petrol, white blossom and angular white grape.
On the palate, the dry-spirted, slightly-off-dry riesling delivers, medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity and completing with a slightly lime-citrus-and-quince-infused finish.
Midpalate complexity abounds with bright flavors and hints of caramel.
Yummy and proves the ageability of German riesling.
