2005 in Germany (Riesling)

Claude Kolm's THE FINE WINE REVIEW No. 116 · Januar 2007

2005 in Germany (Riesling):


2005(Dirmsteiner Mandelpfad)"Himmelsrech" 89+

2005(Laumersheim Mandelberg)"Steinbuckel" 94

2005(Grosskarlbach Burgweg)"Im grossen Garten" 89+


From the very northern end of the Pfalz, Knipser's Himmelsrech shows hazelnut aromas, followed in the mouth by plenty of acidity but some penetration and walnut flavors. More time to develop is needed. Significantly more impressive, the Steinbuckel shows stony white peach aromas and flavors with excellent acitity. This is a real eye-opener for what can come from this portion of the Pfalz. Knipser's Im grossen Garten displays honeysuckle aromas with some white peach. In the mouth, the wine shows peach pit fruit with decent acidity, and with time this could develop into a truly interesting wine."
