2006 Hexamer, Riesling Kabinett, Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg


This bottle from Weingut Hexamer was bought a few years ago from MacArthurs.  Having drunk three vintages of the Weingut Hexamer, “Quartzit” back in August I thought it would be fun to try this bottle.  From a vintage that produced a small amount of ripe wines this bottle is drinking very well at this point.  While I would not specifically search for this bottle at a store, I do not hesitate in recommending that you open a bottle from your cellar.

2006 Weingut Helmut Hexamer, Riesling Kabinett, Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg, Nahe – $23
A Terry Theise Selection imported by Michael Skurnik Wines.  A golden-yellow in the glass.  There is a medium strength nose of rich fruit reminiscent of baked apples in cream.  In the mouth the rich flavors are almost unctuous with a textured tickling on top of the tongue.  The finish contains floral flavors bound in glycerine as stones come out in the long, darker aftertaste.  A solid effort that, while not particularly complex, is quite tasty and provides enjoyment.  Drink now or over the next several years.
