By David Forer In Notes on some recent wines I've been testing the age-worthiness of Kabinett level German rieslings lately, but really just by chance! This one was fairly deep in the just-barely-reachable parts of my cellar and I think it was good to open it now. Just hitting 9 years of age, the wine has reached peak drinking window for an aged lower pradikat wine. These lower level wines don't have the structure of say a Spatlese or Auslese to improve with age as seemingly indefinitely as those higher pradikat levels. But still a thoroughly enjoyable wine, showing nice petrol on the nose and a high acidity. The fruit is mainly tertiary now with a dried peach and almost tea like character. There some minerality there if you look for it. A good wine showing some aged German riesling character, but just not as structured or showing as much weight as I would like in an aged riesling. Drink up now if you have any left! 87 points.
