Vintages Wine Picks July 20, 2013

White Wine

Dr. Pauly-Bergweiler Riesling Kabinett 2011, Prädikatswein, Bernkasteler Badstube, Mosel, Germany: A pleasant-drinking, light-bodied white with aromas of white pear and lime. Bernkasteler Badstube is viewed as some of the best vineyard soils in the Mosel region. There's some orchard fruit on the finish here. Crisp and vibrant, yet has some balancing fruit sweetness so as not to be austere and to pair well with a wider variety of dishes. Some guava and papaya infused with smoke on the finish. Pair with: spicy shrimp dishes, Asian chicken salad, roast turkey. Drink: 2012-2016. 33407 8.50% MD 750 mL  $21.95 Score: 91/100.
