Zeller Schwarze Katz Mosel 2012 Riesling, $9.99-$11.99, 89 points, poured a bright golden color with a slight graying toward the glass wall.
The aroma was reminiscent of jasmine and warm wet pavement (quite nice).
A light-plus bodied semi-sweet rendition of German Riesling, and packed with good acidity, smooth texture, minerality, with flavors dominated by pineapple and sweet grapefruit which carried deep into the finish with a touch of the 9% alcohol, and warrants a taste from anyone wanting a gulper white wine that transitions from sweet to dry with some class!
Paired nicely with Greek styled chicken-lemon soup, but certainly would be very good with Asian cuisine.
The short cork should be noted, because it's easy to auger through it; so hold back about two twists.
