Review: **** $$ Strub Soil to Soul Riesling Kabinett, Rheinhessen, Germany, 2007

Check out today's pricing and retail availability for Soil to Soul Riesling.

By way of background, opening thoughts: Here we have a kabinett-style riesling imported by Michael Skurnik Wines as a Terry Theise Estate Selection.


Original tasting and review : This is Strub Soil to Soul Riesling Kabinett, Rheinhessen, Germany, 2007, finished at 10.% alcohol.

In the glass: Light yellow.

On the nose: Poured at cellar temperature and swirled vigorously, shows bold, sleek metallic grass with an underbelly of softer hay.  From the aroma, seems like this will be bright but still easy going, perhaps sweet in character.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are in fact creamier than anticipated, with a soft, fresh white grape component.  Nice acids lift the sweetness and help the sip stay composed in your cheeks for a full 30 seconds.  Then, balanced, savory apple juices drip down.

In summary: Overall, rates four stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, and is a best value.
