Berncasteler Doctor Riesling Kabinett 2013
Exotic, offering up scents of oranges and apricots, then folding flavors of melon and spice on the palate. It's broad but basically balanced; round yet with adequate acidts, picking up hints of citrus pith on the finish.
Berncasteler Doctor is one of the most famous and prestigious Riesling vineyards in Germany, located within Bernkastel in the Mosel. The name is said to derive from the 14th century story of Kurfürst (Prince Elector of the Holy Roman Empire) Boehmond II, Archbishop of Trier, who was staying at Landshut Castle when he was suddenly overcome by a deathly illness.
