WTN: '01 Hexamer Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg Riesling Kabinett (Nahe)

...and with a finish almost as long as the name of the wine.

This is quite good, but it's not ready for prime time. Light peach and pineapple, with a touch of red fruit. Some creaminess is emerging on the palate if you look hard enough. Very good if not extraordinary Riesling, but for the $11.99 I paid for it "back in the day of the stron dollar" I can't complain. Very good with that lime/ginger chicken we make. The acids in the wine really mesh with the lime acids in the marinade.

If you've got 'em don't be afraid to try one, but I am holding my last 3 for another year or two before openeing another one.
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
