WTN: Smites the Spreitzer Lightly

by David M. Bueker » Sat Aug 24, 2013 9:51 am

2004 Weingut Spreitzer Oestricher Lenchen Riesling Kabinett - Germany, Rheingau (8/23/2013)
It's now clear that the one thing this wine needed was several years of age. On release it was overblown and virtually undrinkable. A few years later it had toned down to the point where it was an acceoptable, but unexciting drink. Last night it finally emerged as a filgree, lightly sweet, long and refreshing modern kabinett. It's still more a spatlese in weight, but classical spatlese, so very nice with food. There's some very nice mineral elements on the finish as well. Of course this was my last bottle.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
