Knebel’s 2007 Winninger Rottgen Riesling Spatlese features honey-drizzled, spiced purple plum in an oily rich matrix, with hints of caramel and sage adding interest without engendering any sense of split personality to a satisfyingly long and luscious finish. The only possible quibble with this wine (one that, admittedly, cannot compare with its off-dry 2006 counterparts) is its really pronounced sense of sweetness – a function of low acidity as much as sheer residual sugar – which is apt to back off if one hangs on to bottles for their full decade or more of cellar potential. 
 
"Beate Knebel and her oenologist Gernod Kollmann – mindful of their need for more trocken wines after a relative dearth in 2006 – let a number of this year’s very ripe musts run all the way down to just a few grams. The result – when combined with acid levels quite low even by the dry wine standards of this estate – was that alcohol and austerity sometimes pose problems. The Knebel 2007 Riesling trocken von den Terrassen – a blend from four sites reviewed in issue 178 – displayed impressive density and intensity after half a year in the bottle."
