Tasting Note                         

90   2006 Bollig-Lehnert Piesporter Goldtropfchen Kabinett  7/28/07 ($17)

Color: Medium silver yellow. (3.0) Bouquet: Sweet pink grapefruit with excellent mineral and some orange. (3.5) Body: Middleweight with plenty of fruit complemented by good mineral and acidity with a light honey mouthfeel. (3.0) Flavor: Parallels bouquet, but lighter with less life and more simplicity. (2.5) Finish: Parallels bouquet, but less intense. Still tasty with sweet grapefruit lingering. (3.0)
Overall: An excellent drink-me-now fruit bomb with some honeyed sweetness. It is tending towards semi-sweet, i.e., on the sweet side for a Kabinett, but has the balance, mineral and acidity to be very charming on its own or with food. Very well done! (15.0)
