Top Riesling Wine

My wine reviews include Riesling wines with high scores for their superb quality and taste, and their prices often reflect this as they tend to be more expensive. These Riesling wines achieve a score of 90 points or higher out of 100 and are often the wines that have the greatest aging ability and are therefore great Riesling wines for your cellar. They are also often the top ranked wines on many lists, especially in fine restaurants, with ratings that reflect their craftsmanship. You'll also find my reviews of Riesling wines that are less expensive, but still represent great value. This is just a small set of my wine reviews: when you join my wine community, you can access all of my reviews.

Studert-Prüm Kabinett Riesling 2009
Q.M.P., Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Mosel, Germany
Vintages Wine Panel: The 2009 vintage is another in an impressive 10-year string of fine wines from Germany. Wehlener Sonnenuhr vineyard’s steep slopes of blue slate and thin topsoil produce some of the world’s best Rieslings, and this Kabinett is typical in its beautifully balanced fruit and minerality. On the nose, a tantalizing, light array of peach, apricot, dates, citrus, floral, and wisps of candied fruit and lime, are finely interwoven with slate. Lightly spritzy, with great focus, acidity, and ripe fruit on the palate, this off-dry charmer is an excellent value. My note: Such a pretty wine form such a consistently good producer. Peach, apricot and pear aromas dance and are kept in balance with a silver seam of mouth-watering acidity. Love it! Alcohol: 8.5%  Sweetness: Medium Dry  750 ml  Drink: 2011‐2017  Price: $18.95 Score: 90/100
