Balthasar Ress – 9/02/2012

Von Unserm Trocken Riesling 2010
Very sharp and lean on the palate, fresh and vibrant, but a little aromatically shy.

Hattenheimer Feinherb Riesling 2010
Lovely and approachable, exactly what you want out of this kind of wine, as it is malleable with food.

Hattenheim Engelmannsberg Riesling 2010
A much more textural and rich wine, and exhibited some nice wild honey characters on the back palate.

The wines in general were all very good examples of the variety and region, but for my under-developed but unbiased palate, seemed a little on the simple side, lacking distinct character or austerity. It will be interesting to see how the wine style evolves over the coming years, as there are apparently some big things happening in the winery currently.
