  • 2017 Alfred Merkelbach Kinheimer Rosenberg Riesling Spätlese #1 - Germany, Mosel Saar Ruwer (7/25/2020)
    SE Asian food on the menu, out comes the Merkelbach. Somewhat front heavy on the front half in terms of sweetness, but airation certainly seemed to bring this into balance and focus. Ripe papaya and peach carry the load and mid palate sees the elegance one associates with this producer. A tad short on the finish, but a minor quibble, this was very good. I’d give this a short decant or hold 3 to 5 before cracking another. (90 pts.)
