The #German #dry wine industry has learned a lot in the past two decades and one aspect is how to deal with #Rieslings innately high acidity. #1997 was a very fine year throughout the various regions, but this is drying out and was clearly not intended for long-term aging in excess of 10 years.
It made a decent partner to food, but not as a straight sipping wine. A modest amount of residual sugar would have created a more balanced wine. #LangwerthvonSimmern #RauenthalerRothenberg #Riesling #Kabinett #Rheingau — 7 years ago
