Paul Anheuser 2008 Schlossbockelheimer Konigsfels Riesling Kabinett (Germany)
I'm not going to dwell on the length of the name on this wine, nor will I be speaking a long time here about the flavours and smells of this wine. What I want to say is that it is hard to argue about the German's choice of grape variety they hung their hat on, when they can do it so well. This was a well made, very tasty, very minerally Riesling, that hit all the high points of what the grape offers with none of the low points. And with only 8% alcohol you could drink this all day and all night with little in the way of side-effects. And now with the use of screwcaps these wines are even more fresh and fantastic. Great with Chinese food too - which is what I had for dinner.
