This item seemed a little inexpensive for a Spätlese, and perhaps there was a reason for that: It was palatable but uninspiring.

Dr. Hubert Gänz 1995er Guldentaler Sonnenberg (Nahe) Riesling Spätlese ($9.99)
Clear pale-gold. Fresh green-apple scent and a full, rather sweet candy-apple flavor, with crisp acidity to give it structure. Nicely balanced but rather simple, quenching and fresh. U.S. importer: Milton S. Kronheim & Co., Inc., Washington, D.C.; a Terry Theise Estate Selection. (Feb. 20, 1998)

FOOD MATCH: Poached salmon made a fair match.

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
