RATINGS

91Vinous / IWC

Pear wreathed in honeysuckle coveys a deceptive aura of sweetness on the nose...fruit succulence and inner-mouth florality that ensue are flatteringly-complemented by the wine’s seductively creamy texture...creaminess is entirely compatible with animating juiciness, here supplied by a squeeze of fresh lemon that, in tandem with tang of pear skin, piquancy of pear and lemon pips, as well as marine salinity serves for a surprisingly and delightfully invigorating as well as mouthwatering finish.

REGION

Germany, Rheingau

Rheingau is considered one of the finest of Germany’s great wine districts. Its 8,000 vineyard acres are planted primarily to Riesling, and the Rieslings of Rheingau are noted for their steely character. In recent decades producers have also started planted Pinot Noir, called Spatburgunder in Germany. Historically the most famous Rieslings of the Rheingau have been the very sweet Beerenauslesen and Trockenbeerenauslesen styles, but as the market for dry wines has increased, younger Rheingau winemakers have begun producing dry Riesling, harkening back to methods used before the 20th century. By 2005 nearly 85% of the Rheingau Rieslings have been dry wines.

TYPE

White Wine, Riesling, Kabinett

This white variety originated in Germany. It’s known for its strong flowery aromas and high acidity. Please note Rieslings can have dramatic differences as the grape can be used to make dry, semi-sweet, sweet and sparkling wines.
