Natalie's Review

Balthasar Ress Riesling Spätlese 1997, Q.M.P., Hattenheim Nussbrunnen, Rheingau, Germany: Vintages Wine Panel: Here’s a chance to try a 13-year-old Riesling, from the terrific 1997 vintage, for an incredible price. This really shows off how well Rieslings can age. Brilliant golden colour. Complex aroma profile of petrol, honeyed apple, pear nectar, mineral, dried apricot and fresh citrus. Deeply delicious with exceptional aroma replays on the palate. This off-dry wine is still quite youthful, and will age longer, but why bother when it’s this good? My note: Highly aromatic of wild flower and peach preserves. Yes there’s sweetness but it’s balanced nicely with the acidity. 160762 8.50% MS 750 mL  $21.95 Score: 88/100. August 21, 2010  Full Review
