WTN: 2003 Rheingau Kabinett

Postby Jim Grow » Thu Jun 12, 2014 9:33 pm

This wine, the 2003 Spreitzer Riesling Kabinett from Oestricher Lenchen was wonderfully sound and quite sweet. Reminded me of a sweet style lemonade with good acidity and with a creamy finish and texture. Some viscosity seen on the glass and medium/light straw in color. $9.75 on deep discount and abv of 8.5% a Therry Theise Selection. I'm sure this wine was not perfectly stored so others cellared properly might age a good bit longer.

The Spreitzer brothers have been doing better each and every year. They are now in the Rheingau elite IMO.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
