2007 Joh. Jos. Prum Riesling Kabinett
This was pretty serious stuff, which surprised me a bit. For whatever reason I was expecting something more straightforward. And a bit sweeter. Whether you'll like this wine will depend, I think, on how dry you like your Riesling. For my palate, I thought this one was pretty dry. Starts off with considerable petrol aromas backed by citrus. On the palate, lots of lime sherbet, grapefruit and flat ginger ale. Considerable zing with a touch of acidity. Wanted to like it more than I did, but overall a solid effort from Germany.
WWP: 87/100 Very Good

A German Riesling I liked quite a bit more was this one. What can I say? I like my wine a little sweeter.
Question of the Day: Have you tried this one? If so, what did you think? If not, what are some of your favorite German Riesling producers?
