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.
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.)
