Mature Riesling Kabinetts are a World of their Own

Click For Large ViewTonight, I opened a bottle of 1979 Oberemmeler Altenberg Riesling Kabinett from Pfarrgut Sankt Briktius, now part of the Bischöfliche Weingüter. I am forever surprised at how subtly such light Rieslings with barely a kiss of residual sugar mature and understand only too well why such wines were once considered the pinnacle of perfection. At thirty three years of age, no one would speak of sweet, but at most of balance. Like the lesser known 'cru bourgeois' from Bordeaux, such simple bottles often provide the greatest pleasure…and at attractive prices for those of us not born into fortunes. This is path to follow!
