1999 Jakoby-Mathy Riesling Kabinett Kinheimer Rosenberg Mosel-Saar-Ruwer

06092009When I think of great wines for summer sippin’, I think crisp and light-weight, with a lip-smacking refreshment factor. Well, this one hits all those marks – it has the lime zest and diesel on the nose and a flavour burst of lime zest along with tart green apple and honey. The crisp finish goes on for a bit with a honey-licked-from-a-rock minerality.

Added on to all that is the fact that it’s 10 years old and is starting to show what’s so good about well-made, aged Rieslings. You folks need to drink more of this stuff.

It’s tasty. If you’re a fan of Riesling and come across this wine, I’d recommend giving it a try.

$29 at Kitsilano Wine Cellars here in Vancouver.
