A Taste of Riesling in Singapore

Click For Large ViewI arrived late in Singapore this evening and raced - with dirty socks, a worn shirt and unbrushed teeth - to a tasting that Brad Ng had organised with Paul Seah and Hwee Peng Lim at his shop in the Plaza. The first flight was Riesling, with a range varying across several countries and vintages from 2011 back to 2002. Two wines stood out, the 2011 Leiwener Riesling Kabinett from Sankt Urbanshof (winemaker Nik Weis is pictured to the right) and the 2002 Riesling Altenberg from Gustave Lorenz, a surprise for me. I remain astonished at how full bodied the current vintage on the Mosel tastes - and how little acidity most of the wines have. My first closer look at the new vintage from the finest estates from the Mosel will take place on the 1st of July. More then… Comments
