Wine Review: This Excellent pale yellow colored Riesling from the Rheingau opens with a fragrant apricot and Bartlett pear bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, rich, concentrated and very sweet. The flavor profile is a very tasty apricot and Anjou pear blend with a hint of minerality. The finish remains sweet and its flavors linger for quite some time. This Spatlese is close to a dessert wine. It is also very refined and classy. Serve with sliced green apples and sharp cheddar cheese to end a perfect meal and evening. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2010 growing season in the Rheingau got off to a late start after a long, snowy winter. But beautiful, sunny weather in October brought full ripeness, long hang time and extraordinary concentration to the wines. The 2010 Kiedrich Gräfenberg Spätlese is enormously lush and ripe, but with a firm backbone from the elevated acidity of the vintage. It is massive and complex on the palate with deep, dense layers of fruit and a fine fruit finish that lingers endlessly.

Your comments on this wine:

Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
