- 1998 Ernst Bretz Bechtosheimer Klosterberg Riesling Beerenauslese - Germany, Rheinhessen (3/27/2006)
A bargain BA usually isn't. No lucky suprise here. The cork had soaked through some, so this might be more mature than expected. Color was a bright and clear golden yellow. Promising notes of ripe peach and white flowers on the nose. Taste, however, was one dimensional--sweet, cloying and short. The acidic backbone was missing and there was just the slightest hint of stone. A wine to quaff while the the mind is occupied otherwise.
