WTN: Paterberg Noster

2005 J & HA Strub Niersteiner Paterberg Riesling Spätlese *** - Germany, Rheinhessen (8/16/2018)
This bottling continues its long and positive evolution under screw cap. It's on an early peak, with lots of fruit (peach, pineapple) accompanied by spice, vanilla and honey accents. It's very rich, but has a finishing acidity that keeps it clean. This is not the most terroir driven wine, but the Paterberg isn't known as a top site. It just gives delicious wines in the hands of a family that knows the land. Moving along very well at this stage, with many more years ahead of it.

The Strub style has changed with Sebastian taking over for his dad Walter. The wines are often much drier, and so compete in a different arena. I think that has hurt them in some ways.
