Weingut Emrich-Schonleber Monzinger Kabinett Riesling 2010

The region of Nahe only came about in the early 1970s but the area has always produced top quality grapes. There is a large river system that runs through the area which allows for cooler night thus crisp acidity to accumulate in the wines. While the area doesn't produce the ultra minerally styled wines they are generally full of flavour and very long on their palate length.

Gorgeous Kabinett styled with flavours of spice, lime rind, pine slice and crushed flowers. While these flavours might sound sweet the wine is balanced by crisp acidity which gives the impression of medium sweetness and texture to boot. From the mid-palate on the wine pulls in tight leaving my mouth salivating. Just yum and cheap too for the style.
