Tasting Notes

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Late-released Smaragd counterpart to an extraordinary Riesling Federspiel reviewed in issue 181, the Nikolaihof’s 2007 Riesling Smaragd Vom Stein displays a fascinatingly diverse if hard to pin-down floral bouquet (orange blossom, lily-of-the-valley, I know not what else), along with pink grapefruit and tangerine rind. On the palate, there is a depth of mineral and carnal elements one can otherwise expect only in great Chablis: like a mingling of rich chicken and vegetable stock with fresh scallop and oceanic salinity. In drinking this (solely spitting proved impossible) it seems as though one is restoring one’s balance of humors. Heaven knows, no wine could seem more “natural,” or more of a tonic. Both the wafting floral perfume and mysterious savor follow in a long, saliva-stimulating finish. This will surely work its magic from bottle for more than a decade." (DS) (04/14)
