Vintages Wine Picks February 16, 2008

White Wine

Prinz Salm Schloss Wallhausen Riesling Kabinett 2006, Q.M.P Nahe, Estate Btld., Nahe, Germany: Vintages Wine Panel: Here is an excellent opportunity to discover the Rieslings of Nahe. The first mention of this acclaimed winery was in the year 1200! It has remained in the Salm family‚Äôs hands to this day, making it the oldest, continuously family-owned estate in Germany. The estate produces vibrant Rieslings with lovely aromas of lime, tangerine and mineral tones. My note: A lovely medium-bodied sipper with thrilling ripe pear and peach aromas. Pair with: pan-seared scallops. 993766 7.70% MD 750 mL  $21.75 Score: 90/100. February 16, 2008 Favorite White Wine. Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
