    Winemaker's Notes:

    This 2003 Abtsberg Riesling Spatlese can be compared with butterflies: extremely colorful but also very light. The Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region, where this wine is produced, is known for the finest Riesling wines in the world. The Mosel yields the softest, broadest and fullest wines, the Saar the steeliest and most austere, the Ruwer the most fragrant, with a fine fruity acidity.

    "Good depth and richness here, yet balanced by soft acids, minerality and spice. Hints of kerosene spark the aromas, which also boast ripe apple and pear notes. Baked tree fruit on the palate, wrapped in minerals and spice, yet not overly heavy."--90 pts, Wine Enthusiast

    "Although sporting all the sweetness and fruit that the vintage predicts, this beautifully balanced wine is always trim and free of fat with a wonderful marriage of sugar and vibrant acidity. Its insistent themes of sweet limes, pineapple and green apples are underlain by touches of stone and slate, and the wine maintains an uncanny sense of delicacy despite being so very rich."
