2008 Becker-Steinhauer Riesling Kabinett, QmP Veldenzer Kirchberg, Mosel
Summer is winding down, and LCBO is breaking my heart with these recent releases. There's just been a total lack of interesting German rieslings in the releases these past few weeks - very disappointing. What happened to all the wonderful Nahe wines from earlier this year?!
What we get here is an utterly unremarkable wine, non-descript and sadly lifeless. A correct wine, mind you, just devoid of heart. Lacks bouquet, lacks texture - just an issue all over, monstrous yields or something going on in the cellar, just a disappointing wine. Sad. And I really try hard to like these wines.
