2009 Rotschiefer Riesling, Van Volxem, Saar

IMG_5306

Very nice Riesling fruit and dirty slate tones (dirty in a good way of course) in the nose. Still lots of yeasty aromatics as well. On the palate off-dry of course, classic Kabinett-like with nice Riesling peach fruit, and again the dirty slate tones. Nice minerality and superb acidity balancing the wine and a beautiful finish! This is juicy and empties itself in a blink. Plus at about 12 Euro, an excellent deal. 2009 is the vintage to stuff your cellar with such wines from Saar and Mosel. Of course the higher Prädikate are excellent but this price range offers such good value this year.

Gotta check out the great pictures of the work in the steep Saar vineyards on the estate’s site.

Sehr schöne Riesling-Frucht und dreckige Schiefertöne in der Nase. Auch noch viel Hefearoma. Am Gaumen feinfruchtig wie ein klassicher Kabinett. Leichte 10% Alkohol machen hier richtig spaß. Sehr ausdrucksstarke Pfirsich-Frucht und wieder diese schön dreckigen Schiefertöne. Gute Mineralität und eine wunderschöne auspuffernde Säure. Schön langes und animierendes Finish. Sehr saftig und die Flasche leert sich fast in einem Wimpernschlag. Für ca 12 Euro ein super Wein. Überhaupt kann man sich in dieser Preisklasse von 2009 aus Saar und Mosel fast alles in den Keller stopfen.
