The succulent juicy 2004 Lorcher Schlossberg Riesling Kabinett smells alluringly of nectarine and lime along with hints of wet stones salts and cherry that put one in mind of Saar Riesling. On the delicate yet expansively flavored palate this is lip-smackingly invigorating in its combination of fresh fruits fruit skin and mineral notes. The lime and nectarine along with tangerine zest and slate essence make for a compelling finish. -David Schildknecht Not many years ago August Kesseler was vinifying - in addition to the Pinot Noirs for which he has long been known - almost entirely dry Rieslings that were seldom seen outside Germany. Nowadays he is reveling in residually sweet Rieslings and has launched an aggressive export program with the intention of becoming a major force in the U.S. market. Given the amazing price/quality rapport of some of the wines I tasted he should succeed brilliantly in that endeavor.

The wine is clean and aromatic with creamy notes of honeyed florals candied apple and lime peel slatey mineral and a touch of pine resin. The palate shows similar character with spicy pear and apple peach and lime. There is a nice patina to this wine-it shows some evolved qualities but the underlying acidity is still assertive and fresh striking a complex interesting balance.
