FRITZ HAAG BRAUNEBERGER JUFFER RIESLING KABINETT - 2005
German semi-sweet Riesling with 8.5% alcohol.
Pale yellow water color with wet rock, apple and pear on the nose. Lots of frizzante with lemon-lime, honey, yeasty bread notes and vanilla on the finish. Light weight but solid acidity helps keep the wine in balance.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
Wine Spectator gave this wine a 92 point rating but it falls quite short of that rating for me. This is a good Riesling with a decent amount of residual sugar at $15 - $20 a bottle, I think it becomes a questionable purchase. There are lots of Rieslings in this price range that bring more enjoyment.
