Lime and white flowers on the nose with nuances of crystallized ginger. Very sweet on entry then more austere in the middle with lively acidity lifting the concentrated peach nectar and quince flavors. This fruit bomb offers compellingly sucrosite and superb palate presence--and a long velvety finish. This was made from 60-year-old vines and 10% botrytized grapes. According to Cathy Faller the wine has "a baroque attack but a gothic finish." 94(+?) -- Ian D'Agata

The Weinbach 2011 Riesling Schlossberg Cuvee Sainte Catherine l'Inedit finished with the same 14% alcohol as its two fellow Sainte Catherine bottlings, but left behind a decidedly obvious 22 grams of residual sugar. A gorgeous nose suggests rowan, almond extract and Normandy cider. Creamy - almost custardy - richness of texture is complimented by piquantly zesty and spicy counterpoint that point toward the wine's botrytis component, as well as by cool mintiness and an admirable sense of primary fresh apple and white peach juiciness. This isn't lacking in sheer energy, either, managing to make a boldly seductive statement of unique vintage potential without exhibiting any of 2011's potential pitfalls. Plan to revisit this beauty through at least 2030. - David Schildknecht
