2006 Nahe

2006 Kruger-Rumpf Riesling Spatlese

2006 Kruger-Rumpf Riesling Spätlese, QmP Münsterer Dautenpflänzer, Nahe

I've never been disappointed with a Nahe riesling. Not even mildly. Vintages needs to get on this and start bringing more in; these wines are extraordinary.

Not a big fan of the 2006's, from here, Mosel, or Rheingau. Sort of flabby, a bit plush. But this one has the raciness I want, desperately needed in a good riesling. Doesn't have the intensity or absolute depth in texture or body, but this is a delicious wine. Linear minerality, perfectly ripe fruit, balanced and harmonious. The purity is stunning, the acidity perfectly framing the fine sweetness. Very, very long.

And very, very good.
