Tasting Report: 2007 J.J. Prum Kabinett Riesling

2007 Joh. Jos. Prum Riesling Kabinett
9% Alcohol

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?
