Vintages Wine Picks April 12, 2008

White Wine

Darting Riesling Spätlese 2006, QmP, Ungsteiner Herrenberg, Estate Btld., Pfalz, Germany: Vintages Wine Panel: Over the past few years, current owner Helmut Darting has introduced a drier style to all levels of his wines. For example, his Spätlese tastes more like a Kabinett, while his Auslese comes across like a Spätlese. This Spätlese is filled with aromas and flavours of peach, pear, citrus and apricot. It is medium dry with a beautiful seam of acidity bringing the wine into excellent balance. My note: A lovely, elegant Riesling with enticing aromas of ripe tree fruit and white flowers. Pair with: grilled salmon, lemon/dill sauce, spicy asian. Drink: 2008-2013. 963207 10.50% M 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 90/100. April 12, 2008 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
