Rudesheimer Kabinett Riesling 2013

Leitz Rudesheimer Rosengarten, VDP Kabinett Riesling, Rheingau, Germany 2013

Screw cap closure, 10% abv, £15, Waitrose

WSET style tasting note
Appearance – clear and bright, medium intensity lemon, showing distinct tears.

Nose – clean on the nose, with a medium (+) intensity, youthful, with aromas of green fruit – green apple peel, stone fruit  – unripe nectarine and apricot, then tinned grapefruit and a hint of unripe pineapple skin.

Palate – an off dry wine, with high acidity, no tannin, medium (-) alcohol, medium (+) body, medium intensity flavours of stone fruit – apricot and white peach and ripe dessert apple, and tropical hints on the finish.  A medium length with a clean fruity finish, with the slightest grip on the gums.

Quality – a good quality wine, with delicate flavours and high acidity. The high acidity is balanced by sweetness, which are harmonious with the intensity of flavour.  A fruity wine, quite complex with green, stone and tropical fruit notes, with a moderate length and crisp fruit laden finish.  This wine is ready to drink now, and has acidity and primary fruit intensity to keep for 2-3 years, but will not improve with cellaring.
