Boisterous peach and pineapple fruit with a tinge of spice. Rich but not at all thick, this had penetrating flavor with no heaviness despite its obvious ripeness. Long, peachy finish that come through with a bit of a kick of acidity at the end. Easy, easy, easy to drink.
The Paterberg is not a "great" vineyard, so the wines tend to be easy and very fruit forward. Not the slatiness that you find in Mosel. Strub has better vineyards, but I always enjoy the friendly wines of the Paterberg. They represent good quality, great value drinking.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
