This is still a work in progress as I upload tasting notes and wine labels from as far as 1999... Check back once in a while to get the updates.

A pair of '88 Rieslings

Dinner at Candlenut in Singapore.

1988 von Schubert Maximin Grünhäuser Herrenberg Riesling Kabinett - nose of lemon, white flowers, flint, slight hint of petrol.  Definitely some acidity on the back palate, a little ripe, almost a little bitter.

1988 von Schubert Maximin Grünhäuser Abstberg Riesling Spätlese - nose a little more closed at first, with some petrol, flint, some orange marmalade.  Perhaps slightly riper on the palate than the kabinett, but no significant level of sweetness.

Full notes on dinner is here.
