WTN: 2004 Gysler Scheurebe halbtrocken

Weinheimer Holle. QbA. 12% alc. Imported by Michael Skurnik. $12 for one liter.

Finished with synthetic cork and no capsule. After pouring a cellar-temperature glass in my warm home office with the fan running, I finally experienced that "cat pee" odor in the air that others have so eloquently described in other varieties. Oddly pleasant even though I'm not a cat owner!

Tangy scent of grapefruit and that "pee" on the nose. Full, minerally, grass and lime fruit on the palate. Just enough acidity to balance the fruit and minerals. Nice length. Not sure how to match this one up with food.

This is a very well-made wine for the price. A bit of a surprise with regard to intensity and flavor profile for a shoo. Sense of sweetness: two out of four. I like Terry Theise's sense of sweetness scale and try to incorporate it into my own tasting.
