2005 Balthasar Ress Riesling Kabinett Rheingau Hattenheimer Schützenhaus

11192007.jpgSweet Jesus, this is a tasty Riesling. This is one of those wines that get me thinking that I should drink more Riesling.

It’s got a beautiful nose with and edge of that petrol (yes, smelling a touch of diesel fuel is a good thing with Riesling), a bunch of peach, apricot and flinty stone. Taking a sip is a delicious experience – the flavours are all lemon-edged peach, with a long gently acidic apricot finish.

Seriously tasty stuff that would pair with many foods at the drop of a hat. Buy it.

$22.99 at LDB stores here in BC.
