Nice to revisit this (it had been almost seven years).  This was a  great value back in the day ($20).  It really hasn't ddeveloped as much as hoped, but still a very good wine.  Light gold/green in color. The nose has green apples, and minerals. On the palate, this is dry. Some depth. The palate is more peach with some minerality.  Shorter finish.  No hurry but won't get better.  A nice wine with lighter foods or maybe some Szechuan.

Light gold in color. The nose has wet rocks and some peaches. Nice texture.  Great balance and acidity. On the palate, this is just slightly sweet. Good minerality.  Some peaches and slight pineapple notes. Long finish. Drinking about at peak but will still go for another five years.  A great choice with Thai food.

Golden with green hues, clear and bright.  The nose has grapefruits, and some peach.  Also, minerality.  Medium bodied.  Slightly oily texture.  On the palate, this is dry.  Great acidity.  Crisp.  Lemons, slight peach and minerals.  Deep with a nice complexity.  Long finish.  This is still youthful but drinking nicely.  This is great on its own and will work well with a wide variety of foods.  It would be great with Thai food.  Drink over the next fifteen years.

JJ Prum's always offer up some of the best Rielsing values anywhere and this one is included.  Light golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose is great.  Peaches, "wet rocks", and just a hint of sulfur.  Medium bodied.  Slightly viscous.  Enough acidity.  On the palate, peaches, very slight pineapple and minerality.  Long finish.  Delicious.  This is showing plenty of depth and some complexity as it opens.  Consumed over tow nights, it was better on night two.  Great on its own, but worked very well with some good, soft cheeses.  Drink over the next twenty years.

One of our favorite German producers.  Golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose is great with peaches, wet rocks and a touch of sulfur.  Viscous.  Great acidity.  Great balance.  On the palate, sweet pineapple notes with a touch of coconut and lots of minerality.  Long finish.  Still showing some youth but also starting to show some complexity.  Delicious.  Long finish.  This is great on its own and would work well with foods that work with the sweetness.  It would be great with Thai food.  Drink over the next fifteen to twenty years.

Apparently, this was purchased at the winery and brought back.  Light golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose is pretty with lychees and some lemons.  Medium bodied, oily texture.  On the palate, this is slightly sweet.  Complex.  Flavors of Pineapple with nice minerality.  Nice acidity.  Good finish.  A very nice wine that is closing in on maturity but still very fresh.  Nice on its own, this will work with lighter foods such as a fruit salad very well.  Drink over the next ten years.

This is a dry Riesling from Germany.  For those who "dislike" Riesling because it is sweet, this is a nice surprise.  Golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose is about minerality with "wet rocks" and some lemons and slight peach.  Full bodied.  Crisp but a slightly viscous texture.  On the palate, lemons and minerals.  Long finish.  This is incredibly food friendly but a great choice would be Thai food.  Drink over the next fifteen to twenty years.

Served blind.  Always a favorite, it seems this has come down in price over the years and is now an excellent value.  Light golden in color with some slight silvery hues, clear and bright.  The nose is nice with an outdoorsy/hay quality.  Also minerality and slight lemon/citrus notes.  Medium bodied.  Good acidity.  Nice texture.  On the palate, lemons with slight grapefruits.  Slightly clipped finish.  This drinks great on its own and is very food friendly.  It will go well with Thai food.  Drink over the next ten years.

Light golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose is nice.  Fresh and young.  Pears, slight peach, and some minerality..  Slightly viscous texture but balanced with crisp acidity.  Sweet, could easily be a Spatlese.  Long finish.  This wine still seems quite primary.  It went well with Japanese Tofu and vegetables.  It will still improve over the next ten years and be good drinking for the next twenty or more.

It has been a bit since I tried this producer.  The wines used to be everywhere, but they don't seem as prevalent these days at least in the stores I shop in.  That is a shame as these are very good and reasonably priced wines.  Light golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose has slight peach, bits of lemon rind and wet rocks.  Medium bodied.  Slightly viscous.  On the palate, this is quite tasty.  Lemons, minerals and slight peach.  Good acidity.  Long finish.  This drinks easily on its own (9% abv) but also will work well with lots of food.  Thai food would be a great choice.
