2004 Albert Boxler Riesling Brand
Nearly dry! In fact dry enough that the minor amount of sweetness is immaterial. Lots of tree fruit (peach, pear) and a firm mineral base. This is rather youthful, but lovely to drink right now.

2004 J. J. Christoffel Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Spatlese
Sweet strawberry and peach fruit with classic Wurzgarten spice. Again rather primary, but also quite drinkable. has a bit of a lash of lime on the finish which really cleans things up. Excellent with some aged Gouda cheese.

Go Riesling!
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
