Louis Guntrum 2006 Dry Riesling

 

Rather full and round in the mouth – the combined effect of 12.5% alcohol and a touch of (0.6%) of residual sugar- this nevertheless does taste pretty dry. It’s a minerally version, with smoky minerality and powdered – almost liquefied – stone notes fleshed out by hints of tangerine and peach.

2004 Oppenheimer Sackträger Riesling Spatlese Trocken


Although the aromas of this wine are largely neutral, showing just hints of apple and citrus, the flavors come alive on the palate, offering up ripe apple, lime, nectarine and spice notes. It's Slightly oily in texture, finishing softly tart, accented by dried spices.
