no stars Points | International Wine Cellar , January/February 2004

($23) This Lenchen comes from the Eiserberg, a tongue of land along the river north of town that is also the source of the Spreitzers' signature sweet Spatlese 303. Intense aromas of peach and apricot announce the orchard fruit themes of a rich, creamy and quite sweet palate. Notes of sweet florality, cashew nuttiness and honey emerge with aeration. You could quibble about how stylistically Kabinett-typical this is, but not about its generosity or high flavor interest. 1 star.

Furthermore, many wine drinkers' early experiences with sweet wines from Germany (think Blue Nun), have not been especially rewarding. We say that it's your loss if you continue to fear the...
