As an apertif over two nights, the 2008 Knebel Riesling Trocken QbA.
Easy going, lighter styled dry Riesling, spring blossoms and a little
incipient petrol. A bit short, but as an apertif a nice little wine.

You are posting in the US aren't you, and I wonder what you mean by
"petrol"?

sorry, for some reason petrol has become the normal geekspeak for TDN
(1,2,6-trimethyl-1,2-dihydronaphthalene). Actually probably closer to
kerosene/diesel than gasoline.

TDN is found in lots of grape varieties, but typically the highest
concentrations are in Riesling.
