Grapelive Daily Pick
By Kerry Winslow
2007 Erben von Beulwitz Kaseler Nies’chen Kabinett (Ruwer)
This dry Riesling has hints of fresh sweetness and good richness, but is clean and focused with bright peach and apricot to go with some nice tangy green apple fruit on the palate. There is some interesting slate, stones and mineral notes well hidden now in the background, as well as flashes of tropical exotic fruits. The Erben von Beulwitz estate is a class act and I must say I’m very impressed with their wines, and this one is a fine example of this grape and region as it drinks great and finishes with crisp acidity and citrus flower notes while leaving a lingering touch of sweetness that is in perfect balance with the wine and makes for lots of fun food pairings or great on its own.
