Kurt Hain (Germany) Piesporter Goldtropfchen Riesling Kabinett 2004
2004 is a great, classic Mosel vintage, and from top producer Kurt Hain, wines like this are just perfect models of balance and precision. The nose has gently floral and talcum notes mixed with lemon peel and a suggestion of ripe nectarine. On the palate a beautiful fruit sweetness of downy peaches and ripe, yet elegant fruit, all braced by a slatey acidity. Terrific stuff this, and will age gracefully. This wine is included in a mixed case just launched through with a significant discount, but its regular price is £7.99 fromTanners.
