(THE BUSINESS TIMES) - Silent upon a peak. That precisely describes the moments after drinking a glass of a great red wine, such as Musigny or J F Mugnier. Silent in contemplation and wonderment, quietly savouring and embedding the lingering flavours on my palate into my memory bank.
It was a simple German Kabinett, a 1989 Riesling Scharzhofberger from Egon Muller, a pale-yellow wine with a bouquet of peaches with a tinge of kerosene; very lightly sweet with a minerally flavour and bouquet on the palate. Beautiful.
