2003 Friedrich-Wilhelm-Gymnasium Riesling Spätlese Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Trittenheimer Apotheke

Oh. My. God. Anyone who has read this site for a while knows I’m a fan of a good Riesling… and this, folks, is a good Riesling.

The nose is a classic light mix of that diesel fuel-citrus nose that only the Germans seems to get down with in their Rieslings. A sip really shows what this wine is throwin’ down. There’s a bunch of stone fruit (peach & apricot) along with lemon/lime and a beautiful, slightly sweet mineral-laced finish.

It’s really just so damn good… and one sip makes you want another. At 9% booze those bunches of sips won’t put you under the table either. 🙂

$39.99 at Liberty Wine Merchants here in Vancouver.

4 1/2 stars
