Sweet melon, honey, sweet plum, ripe peach, banana chips, pineapple, and petrol notes. Low alcohol and medium acid. — 2 months ago
A bit sweeter than I expected for a Kabinett, but delicious nevertheless. Green apple and pineapple, with the sweetness leaning towards the pineapple side. Perfect for a hot summer evening. — 6 years ago
Talk about " closet vintages"...2004s are rarely mentioned in discussions of great German vintages over the past 15-20 years, but people are really missing the boat.
The'04s are classic #Mosel #Rieslings with awesome balance and structure, together with ideal acidity levels for long term aging.
Cooler weather vintages such as #2004, which produce wines of greater restraint and less opulence, are less and less common with the onset of global warming, but they are the ones that true Riesling freaks covet most highly--this #Prälat was totally mind blowing!!! #Loosen #ErdenerPrälat #Auslese — 6 years ago
Welcome to the weekend and we are going to Germany to get it started. Opening the 2012 Monchhof Robert Eymael Urzig Wurzgarten Riesling Spatlese.
Upon opening the aromas are very pronounced and ripe with heavy notes of rubber tires, nectarine, apple, Pear, honeysuckle and a little pineapple.
With the first sip the nose is confirmed giving us rubber, petrol, nectarine, apricots, peach, apple, pineapple and honey.
The wine has medium + acidity with a full thick mouthfeel almost to the point of being syrupy. There is a definitive sweetness but not to the point of being overpowering. This is a well balanced riesling and enjoyable.
Please have an enjoyable weekend and be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🖒 — 5 years ago
