2009 Paul Anheuser Kreuznacher Kahlenberg Spätlese Nahe Riesling
I haven't picked a German wine yet, if for no other reason than they are difficult to pronounce! Take this week's pick, for instance: the 2009 Paul Anheuser Kreuznacher Kahlenberg Spätlese Riesling. Talk about alphabet soup! Hopefully the finish is as long as its name.
You can find this week's pick at your local wine shop for $11.99
What Others Thought
Perhaps we waited too long to introduce a Riesling, because this one was "a hit". Some were fearful that this was going to be a heavy, cloying wine but were pleasantly surprised how "vibrant", "crisp" and "fruity" this example turned out to be. "Good fruit" + "good acid"= "Good Wine"!
