This is a complex, food-friendly, fun bottle of wine. Drink it with fried pork tenderloin in the Midwest or wiener schnitzel where you can get it. Highly Recommended (91).

2010 Schloss Schönborn Erbacher Marcobrunn Riesling Kabinett

The nose is very pretty, fresh squeezed apple with orange blossoms floating atop and a copper penny sinking to the bottom. The palate opens with a great mouth feel, smooth and soft. Apples and pears lead the palate with white flowers and a hint of ginger snap in the background. The mid-palate moves toward sweet citrus, lemon chiffon and Key lime pie. The finish lingers with flavors of lemon peel and fresh apple. This clearly has a few percent residual sugar, but mild sweetness is well balanced with bright citrus acidity. This is a complex, food-friendly, fun bottle of wine. Drink it with fried pork tenderloin in the Midwest or wiener schnitzel where you can get it. Highly Recommended (91) DH
