2015 Dr. Pauly Bergweiler Bernkasteler alte Badstube am Doctorberg Riesling Kabinett Mosel

SKU #1276524 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Perfumed and so pretty, this lively kabinett abounds with aromas and flavors of sweet citrus, pineapple and mango. Lavish lavender and potpourri notes persist from nose to finish, lending elegance to this otherwise juicy fruity wine. The sweet-tart tangerine finish is long and meandering. (AI)  (10/2016)

Absolutely beautiful, classic Mosel Kabinett. Very perfumed with aromas of honeysuckle, lavender and wet stones. The palate is mineral-driven, surrounded by notes of tart tangerine, sweet pears, and nectarines with juicy acidity and the perfect amount of sweetness to complement any spicy food. Elegant, complex and delicious.

This is everything I want in a Kabinett. Precise green apple flavors, a touch of tropical fruit and a long stony finish. Great purity and intensity that will drink well now with beautiful spicy dishes while cleansing your palate with is subtle sweet fruit and bright acidity. This will even age well for 5 to 10 more years.

Tasting this wine is like biting into perfectly ripe juicy peach! It is absolutely delicious. It's lush and creamy in texture, with peach, lime, vanilla, apricot and spice notes with bright acidity and minerality.

The sweetness is front loaded in this vintage, but it is a distant memory by the finish. There is just about enough acidity here to not just make your mouth, but your eyes, water, suggesting it could get even better with a few more years in bottle. Lime, spring flowers, wet stone and apricot on the nose transition to a fully floral bouquet, like sweet pea blossoms, on the palate, picking up a delicate honeyed note and lime juice flavors. Despite a pleasing density, this remains shimmeringly transparent. There's a lot of personality and charm to this inexpensive Riesling.

Additional Information:



- While the rest of the world has often misappropriated the name--Welchriesling, Riesling Italico, Gray Riesling and Emerald Riesling are all names applied to varieties that are NOT Riesling--this exceptional German varietal has managed to maintain its identity. Perhaps its biggest claims to fame are its intoxicating perfume, often described as having honeyed stone fruit, herb, apple and citrus notes, and its incredible longevity - the wines lasting for decades. Aged Rieslings often take on a distinctive and alluring Petrol-like aroma. Within Germany, the grape seems to do best in the warming slate soils of the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer. Other German regions that turn out great Rieslings include Pfalz, Rheingau and Nahe. German Rieslings are made in a range of ripeness levels. The top wines are assigned Pr├Ądikat levels to describe their ripeness at harvest. These are: Kabinett, Sp├Ątlese, Auslese, Beerenauslese, Eiswein and Trockenbeerenauslese. Riesling has also achieved acclaim in France's Alsace, the only region in that country where the grape is officially permitted. Alsatian Rieslings are typically dry and wonderfully aromatic. Austrian Riesling is also steadily gaining praise and fine Riesling is also produced in Italy's Alto-Adige and Friuli, in Slovenia and much of Central and Eastern Europe. In the New World its stronghold is Australia, where it does best in the Eden and Clare Valleys. It is also planted in smaller amounts in New Zealand. In the US, winemakers are eschewing the syrupy sweet versions of the 1970s and 1980s, instead making elegant and balanced wines in both California and Washington State.


- Thanks to a recent string of excellent vintages and to the reemergence of Germany onto the international wine writing scene, this is a country that's hot, hot, hot! Germany is divided into 13 wine Region and produces a very wide variety of wine styles, from incredibly high-acid, dry wines to some of the sweetest, most unctuous concoctions on the planet and even a few surprisingly hearty reds. Most of the highest-quality wines are grown on steep banks along the rivers in these Region. Small vineyards are still mostly hand tended and picked, due to the difficult nature of mechanization on these slopes. White wine production accounts for nearly 80% of the total with Riesling being the most important varietal, though Muller-Thurgau is still more widely planted.
