2007 Riesling

Since the 2007 Merkelbach Riesling was so good about two weeks ago I decided to open another from that vintage on Easter.  This time it was from the Rheingau instead of the Mosel;  a Leitz 2007 Rudesheimer Klosterlay Kabinett.

Medium color in the glass, the nose had an initial whiff of kerosene and then went quickly to apple skins and lime peel.  Full bodied and mellow wine with good acid and a taste of a sweet apple and not totally ripe pear.  Good finish that left the mouth refreshed.  Nothing spectacular, but a well made delicious wine at a reasonable price - and that's hard to argue with.

9% alcohol and $14
