Deutschland - I can't think of a funny title....

....every time I try to think of a funny title about Germany it turns into something nasty and incredibly unfunny so let's just stick to wine for now.

Or we can let this fine gentleman bring the funny.

The Germans make a fine Riesling, and one in particular makes me rather excited.

2008 St. Urbans - HOF Riesling Kabinett Ockfener Bockstein

Ultra-refreshing, bordering on sweet, with notes of orange blossoms, pineapple and cherry. It's a symphony of fruit; quite simply the best Riesling I've ever tasted.

At $35, it's an outstanding value. It's beautiful to enjoy now or it will reward careful cellaring for a decade, maybe more. Riesling is one white wine that truly improves with age.

And the taste will rise HIGH!!

Rating: 8.5/10
