This may be my first 2006 from Germany. Paid $25.99 at The Wine Merchant in Raleigh. Screwcap closure. 10% abv.
Very pale, almost colorless. Enticing stone fruit and muted ginger spice on the nose and palate. Well-integrated acid; crystal-like focused note. Suggestion of grapefruit jice along with white peach. Slides down the throat all too easily.
I will be contacting the store for more bottles this fall or winter if still in stock. I think this would be delightful with sauerbraten and red cabbage or mild dishes from Thailand or India. I had it with a chicken/artichoke/grape salad and with baked pork chops with onions and mushroom sauce. (Also a nice pairing.)
