Product Description

"Hanno Zilliken says that his 2010 Saarburger Rausch Riesling Kabinett represents the small lot of Auslese that he thought exhibited the greatest sense of levity. Persian and musk melons; peach and cherry; lime and pink grapefruit scent and succulently saturate the palate of this effusive Riesling whose 10.5 grams of acidity are relegated strictly to battery-storage, inconspicuously powering a long but persistently luscious and mouthwatering finish. (Neither do 82 grams of residual sugar come off here as in any way overly sweet.) Salt, struck flint and crushed stone add saliva-inducement and site-typical intrigue, while hints of lemon zest and radish lend an Eiswein-like nippiness to the whole affair, but in an invigorating rather than an at all annoying way. It's hard to harbor the least reservation about this wine's minimum two-decade potential, nor the least objection other than to its flying under a false Pradikat flag!"
