German Whites Vintage 2007

Talk about keeping up with the Joneses...I have to keep up with the Joes of this world.A photo of reds he is hoping to drink..who knows what this man has in mind? Behind every great man is a good woman..and before every great red is a good white!

After hearing only positive information about the 2007 vintage in Germany I decided to purchase a whole host of whites...practically all Riesling...and mostly trocken. It's going to be hard I shy away from young acidity..but I'm hoping that the vintage will take care of me. Below a list of the wines that will eventually pass my lips.

Hi Barry - that's an impressive list, I can't wait to see the notes. Even better, put a few of those away for unexpected visitors.
Note the very key difference between your bottle picture and mine - in my picture the foils and corks have all been removed...they're empty.

Lyle..thanks...hope it turns out as good as it looks....

Joe..they were full when I last looked..mind you..I heard you guzzle at a quick rate....

Rumours, Barry...

Great list, Barry. By now you may have tried several of the wines and I hope they were good. Just recently I drank the Schnaitmann Riesling and was impressed, especially for the price.
