Natalie's Review

Reichsgraf Von Kesselstatt Kaseler Nies'chen Riesling 2016, Mosel Grosse Lage V.D.P., Germany: Gorgeous breath of spring in this glass. Stay young and optimistic: drink this wine. Notes of ripe pears and peach blossom. Medium-bodied and packed with flavour. Try it with a light white fish like sole tonight. MINE: Reichsgraf Von Kesselstatt Kaseler Nies'chen Kabinett (2014) is a luscious Riesling from the Moselle wine region. This wine is spring in a glass with ripe stonefruit and floral peach beautifully balanced by a crisp acidity. Very elegant. Drink now and for the next five years. OTHER: This offers a most beautiful nose mixing minty freshness with wild yeasty notes and the layered fruity richness from vineyard peach and orange peel. The wine develops the presence of a Spätlese on the palate as a refined touch of cream runs through the wine right into the very long finish. This is a great fruity-styled Riesling! Drink Date: 2026-2036. Score - 93 (Jean Fisch & David Rayer, moselfinewines.com, June 2017). Drink: 2025-2035. 940809 9% M 750 mL  $27.95 Score: 91/100. May 12, 2019 Top Rated White Wine.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
