Drank a bottle of Niersteiner Hipping Riesling Spatlese 2001 from
George Albrecht Schneider 2001 Rheinhessen.
Light bright yellow colour, minerally citric nose, crisp apply tart flavours mingling with steely acidity, nice finish.
Good acids hide sweetness.
88/100 pts. 9% alcohol $ $14.99 Md retail.
Wine is only going to get better in next few years!

I had a chance to try some of Schneiders 2001 barrel samples earlier this year. Unfortunately, this wine was not one of them. I did try the 2000 vintage of this wine and it was one of the standouts from this week vintage. Niersteiner Hipping is GA Schneiders best vineyard site. Nice price also.
