ZÜM Mosel 2011 Riesling, $9.34-$12.99, 91 points, has light brassy tones, and an aroma of gentle apple blossoms and pear.
An off dry white wine, a near medium body, and lip-smacking acidity carries smoothly its refreshing, crisp, and delicate pome flavors, along with persistent minerality.
The juicy finish is profuse and ends with just a hint of ginger.
A friend of mine stopped by yesterday afternoon for a movie and a light meal of toasted onion-bread and tomato bisque, and an assortment of chicken wings. He says: "Something from your private stock?" So I yanked this Riesling from the fridge, poured him a glass, and watched his expressions of pleasure; I'm expressing mine here!
