Vintages Wine Picks May 12, 2007

White Wine

Dr Fischer Riesling Kabinett 2005, QmP, Ockfener Bockstein, Estate Btld., Germany: Vintages Wine Panel: The Fischer family has been involved in viticulture since the 18th century. Dr. H. H. Fischer established this Saar River valley estate near the legendary Ockfener Bockstein vineyards in 1950. The Fischer family has maintained the house style created by Dr. Fischer. A perfect balance of dry and sweet with pretty aromas of pear, apricot and lime. It is almost creamy on the palate with a nice balancing acidity. A very long finish. My note: A lovely light wine with mouth-watering zest and flavor of ripe tree fruit. Barely there sweetness softens the wine and makes it even more delicious and able to pair with a far wider range of dishes than a completely dry wine. Pair with: tuna sushi dishes, quail with grilled onions, pork roast, glazed ham. 30122 MD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 87/100. May 12, 2007 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
