Tell that to Salil! Although he said something about being spoiled by too much Prager and Alzinger recently. Or something like that.

In Salil's words, it 'vaporized' rather quickly. The 2007 Haart Piesporter Grafenberg Spatlese was also plenty delicious in my book, although some (Salil) complained it was too soft and simple.
Salil wrote:Re. Alzinger, yes I've been getting spoiled by Steinertal. But I also opened a 2008 Prager Riesling Smaragd Achleiten on Friday that was outstanding. A little lighter than the '07, more steely and acidic but still superbly balanced with bright Meyer lemon, grapefruit and orange blossom flavours over a mineral base, conveying flavour with incredible precision and clarity.
