JJ Christoffel ‘Urziger Wurzgarten’ Riesling Kabinett, 2007

October 27, 2008

~$21US, 100%Riesling, Urziger Wurzgarten, Mosel, Germany

Fragrant yellow peach and apricot preserves. Very primary and ripe at this point – leaning towards a touch more sweetness than the acids can balance. After 2 days – more integration and secondary flavors play out, with ripe watermelon, plum candy and slate on the finish. More elegant and food friendly with the air time as the acidity comes into focus. This is drinking well right now, but but there are better values offering much of the same in the near-term. However I believe this has the potential to become an excellent Riesling with 5-7 years patience.

A stark contrast with the Leitz in terms of balance and flavor, once again demonstrating the fascinating breadth of Riesling.
