2006 Riesling Spätlese trocken Kalkmergel

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Jan/Feb 08 "Germany 2006 by Joel Payne · Januar 2008

Knipser, Laumersheim:

Justly known for their reds in Germany, Werner and Volker Knipser generally release their wines a year later than do their neighbors, which is why the 2004s are shown here. Their whites have become much better over the past few vintages. Always pushing quality to the maximum, the family left numerous vineyards unharvested at the end of 2006. "We played poker and lost," said son Stephan. "As we only want perfect grapes, it was no longer even worth the effort to go through the last ten acres." For that reason, the family made no Grosses Gewächs in 2006, but instead blended their two top sites into the Kalkmergel described below.

2006 Riesling Spätlese trocken Kalkmergel (88/100):

Brothy aromas of peach pit, hazelnut and sage. The sweet peach fruit is nicely balanced by chalky acidity. The spicy finish slowly reveals good creamy depth.
