WTN: 2012 Karthäuserhof Kabinett

Postby Rahsaan » Sun Aug 03, 2014 2:59 pm

Another lovely bottle of 2012 Karthäuserhof Riesling Kabinett. Splendid accompaniment to cilantro omelette, tostones, and a tomato and basil salad. As fresh zesty and lively as all the previous bottles, but the juicy fruit is definitely receding and the rocky austerity is approaching.

Given my limited storage, this raises the question of whether to hurry up and drink my remaining bottles or hold onto them for the longer term. Decisions decisions. Somehow I will survive!

If it's delicious, drink!

Yeah, that's my inclination as well. A good philosophy when constrained by storage space.

It's a good strategy regardless of storage space. :mrgreen:

Sounds like a really nice wine, Rahsaan.

Still have yet to try any 2012s from Karthäuserhof - definitely something to look forward to.
