2007 Carl Schmitt-Wagner Longuicher Maximiner Herrenberg Riesling Auslese

SKU #1052253

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "There is also but a single Schmitt-Wagner 2007 Longuicher Maximiner Herrenberg Riesling Auslese, harvested with relatively little botrytis. An intriguing, kaleidoscopic nose of cumin, toasted squash seeds, peanut brittle, lime, mint, and yellow plum preserves leads to a sappy, intense, refreshingly herbal and citric palate whose elixir-like Auslese character lies predominantly in its wealth of high-toned inner-mouth esters and its soothing texture. A long, savory, saline, soy-tinged stony, coolly herbal, tartly fruit skin-inflected, yet satisfyingly rich finish scarcely betrays what is in any event by Auslese standards modest residual sugar. (In that respect, Loewen’s style of has been moving toward that which Schmitt has preserved for six decades.) You simply must open this umami-rich wine at a sushi bar – among many other occasions – and its mysteries, charms, and versatility deserve to be enjoyed for the next quarter century or more, during which greater harmony and a clearer visage should emerge from what is certainly a curious as well as delicious Riesling."
