ahhh … i wish they had a visible realtime inventory like K&L. this was my first order from Winex (although I’ve perused the site many times) … I just couldn’t pass it up … i’m weak – there goes my 2 month streak of no wine buying (not counting a couple club shipments, and wines purchased while away from home for the holidays). this will make it a bit easier to resist placing an order with K&L, which I’d been resisting for the past two days.
harumph! low acidity may not be for others, but I don’t mind 'em a bit fat. i’ve never been shy about this, and reckon it is a driving force behind my preference for Rheingaus. still, i gotta believe it’s hard to find a better $20 german spat… I’ll pop one this weekend and report back.
Truthfully, I may have bought a few btls.
$20 is cheap for the wine (as you know) but after just selling 2004 WS Kabinett for $21.99 (and my cost being lower ) I prefer to have that wine, to answer your question.
Had three bottles the past week and half. Not that it was good, just try to learn, or maybe I was looking for miracle.
The final bottle consumed on Superbowl night, acidity was there for sure but the wine as a whole had no focus, acidity was there but dull. Very dull wine. To be honest, I would not spend $20 on wines like this.
