2013 Weiser Kunstler Riesling Feinherb

"They label this plain old 'Riesling' - which is sort of insane as this is just a spectacular bottle of wine. It is pure, pristine, filigreed, perfectly - and we mean perfectly - balanced. The nose is a Mosel perfume of slate, spiced pear and apple edged by fine slivers of citrus and stone fruit, a delicate saltiness that percolates up through its mineral core. The palate is ultra-fresh, all satin and lace, perfect clarity and purity, sweet fruit that is pulled into shape by citrus. This is one of those magical wines, a wine that makes being great seem like the most natural, easiest thing in the world. As the professionals say: Tasted multiple times, consistent notes. This is a wine you can just suck down, bottle after bottle, or you can put it on the table and bring out your books and write poetry." -Importer [+]
