1983 Balthasar Ress Riesling Kabinett, Winkeler Jesuitgarten, Rheingau

The wine I opened in tandem with the 1982. Oh, I've waited for you for so long.

Such a different colour. Gold, yes, but with distinct fiery orange flecks in the light. Beautiful. Much more rustic on the nose - oily, musky, pungent. This is the kind of nose I love. True and unapologetic. A bit more sweetness, richness in the mouth. A powerhouse to the elegance and style of the 1982.

Delicious with the clam capellini and pan-seared striped bass. I love these wines. Who says kabinetts can't age?
