The 2005 Riesling Jubilee - coming as usual with this bottling from the Schoenenbourg - offers sweet scents of honeysuckle orange blossom rowan lemon and tangerine. Luscious honeydew melon fruit enlivened by juicy invigorating citrus and tinged with lemon zest ginger and chalky mineral traces informs a silken-textured palate leading to a strikingly honeyed and bright bitterly zesty and overtly stony finish. This is an excellent candidate for at least 9-12 further years of aging. (The 2001 Jubilee incidentally is no finer in overall quality and now overtly fusil chalky peachy and truffle-scented with an oily-rich palate and full-throttle finish. -- David Schildknecht

Apricot and red cherry flavors play off the honey and candied lemon notes in this tasty light-weight white which has bright acidity. The subtle finish shows a briny tang. Drink now through 2018. 180 cases imported. -BS
