Strub Niersteiner Bruckchen Riesling Kabinett
After all the tongue-numbing work of blending it, we ended up with a fairly simple cuvee of three tanks. We waffled; one blend was really fennely but the other, we agreed, was more suave, with more polish and repose. Not that it lacks energy; it has minerality and its roasted-corn typicity has less scallion than usual. Elegantly long finish.
"Smoke and mineral aromas suggest red slate, augmented by passion fruit and pineapple flavors. This is light-weight and detailed, with balance and fine length. Drink now through 2022. 460 cases imported." WS90 Wine Spectator
