Max Ferd. Richter Riesling 2008
Beautiful pale color and a nose of honeysuckle and light spice. Light and delicate at the start the wine was full flavored with lime, honey and slate. Tremendous acid in the wine that balanced out the sweetness. Good depth and length of flavor. Nice long finish that ended with the acid and not the honey. Not the best wine with a lobster but another indication that the 2008 German Rieslings are some seriously drinkable wines. It will be exciting to try some of the vineyard specific wines when they arrive this summer.
