2008 Riesling Kabinett Feinherb, Weingut Johann Peter Reinert
Cambridge Wine £11.30. B+
On the nose, green apples and pears, some citrus and lime cordial; its fresh and lifted. Palate carries through the citrus, really light and nimble. Acidity rather muted. 9.5%abv - its light and summery, perfect picnic quaffer.
2002 Riesling Spatlese Brauneberger Juffer, Weingut Gunther Fehres
Cambridge Wine £12. A-
More pronounced lime on the nose, plenty of citrus, some developed petrol touches. Palate has more acidity, fatter and wider on the mouthfeel; sweeter as well, maybe 20 g/l. This is focused and precise, and will keep a long long time, serious stuff.
