All the Christmas essentials: Turkey, family, and a super kabi! Best bottle of this Schaefer haul from DC - still a touch of petrol on the nose but it doesn't quite disrupt the finer floral and slatey aromas. Interestingly also felt "straighter" and lighter than the last time we had this. Very airy and saline on the palate. Superb with Christmas dinner.

Save for a light petrol taint (it should not be in young rieslings - I feel strongly about this!), this was lovely. Rounder, fruiter and perhaps a touch sweeter than the 19’ we had a couple of weeks ago, it was still elegant and classically kabi. Flavour-wise, there was lots of peach, green apples, and cassis with subtler notes of wet slate, smoke, and spice. A weaker package than the 19’ for sure, but a pristine bottle would have been a fairer comparison. Still successful in the drinkability front though - first bottle emptied tonight!

A little too sweet when first opened but wait 30 minutes and it develops into a very precise sweet Riesling. Clean and straightforward Riesling ready to pair with Thai curry, Szechuan dishes, or Indian Rogan Josh or Vindaloo.
