Monday Quick Sip – 2007 Karl Erbes Urziger Wurzgarten Riesling Kabinett

Wine Info

Region – Mosel, Germany

Vineyards – Urziger Wurzgarten, 70 degree slope

Price – $19

karl-earbesMy Tasting Notes

Nose – Ripe fuji apple, pear, cantaloupe and slate

Taste – Honey, mineral, touch of petrol, decent amount of balanced sweetness

Mouthfeel – round and full bodied, nice acidity creeping up toward the finish that balanced the level of residual sugar nicely

Finish – Long with sweet minerality

This was a very well put together Riesling but on it’s own it might have been a bit to sweet for me, but paired with spicy Pad Thai that we made it was excellent. The heat helped the sweetness fade and showcased the rest of the flavor profile that the wine had to offer.

Cheers!

  1. I like this wine.

    07 is a mega vintage, and this wine is upfront. I think it will settle over a few years and show some more depth.

    I think it is balanced enough that the RS doesn’t bug me… but I could see how a lot of people would be scared off by it.

    Killer w/ Thai food for sure!

    i agree dirty, it’ll be interesting to see what this done in a few years! 🙂

    cheers
