A Kruger-Rumpf 2011 Munsterer Rheinberg Riesling Auslese - their first, made possible thanks to recently augmented acreage in this site that (as its name suggests) hangs out over the river - features lime in sorbet and candied rind formats, with nut pastes, caramel, and liqueur-like herbal essences pulling it further in a confectionary direction entirely consistent with its prominent sweetness. As an exotic dessert of Riesling, this is quite convincing, and for those who have patience, over the next quarter-century or so as its superficial sense of sweetness likely backs-off, it may well reveal additional dimensions and uses.
