White WineWine Tasting Note: Dr H Thanisch Brauneberger Juffer Riesling Spatlese, 1999, Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Germany
From the cellar.
Had this tucked away since release; the price though and where purchased from escapes me. Just a single solitary bottle in the rack remained. It wouldn't have been expensive, at a guess about £5.99. So an off-dry German white with 7 years age and just 9% alcohol.

With that age you would expect some of that petrol-like development to show on the nose and it does but not overly aggressively. A little spritz remains lifting the creamy, sherbet, lime and orange-peel flavoured wine. Not hugely complex but gentle and pleasant.

Opened as an aperitif, and to free that space in the rack, but later drunk with pan-fried kidneys in a cream and mustard sauce. Unusual I admit but the wines acidity cut through the richness of the dish and the slight sweetness complimenting the cream. It wasn't bad actually but then I simply adore kidneys!
Scribblings Rating - 86/100
