91The Wine Advocate

Nectarine, yellow cherry, orange blossom, and honey inform the nose and a creamy, delicate palate...wonderful lushness yet lightness...fascinating interplay of floral, citrus and pit fruit flavors...displays precisely the sort of refinement, clarity, and flavor dynamic...

17Jancis Robinson

...minerally on the nose...delicate...touch of apricot over the citrus freshness. Remarkable acidity is brilliantly balanced by the sweetness and weight of extract. Elegant and very fine...fleeting hint of spice on the long delicate finish.


Germany, Rheinhessen

Rheinhessen is Germany’s largest “anbaugebiete,” or “quality wine region.” With 65,000 vineyard acres located along the Rhine, it is in the center of Germany’s wine industry. And, for many years, the region was known primarily for producing large amounts of bulk wine blends. In recent years, however, it has become one of the most exciting wine producing areas in Germany, thanks in large part to an energetic group of young, talented, worldly winemakers who have shaken up the region with a return to traditional, rather than industrial, winemaking methods and an emphasis on quality. The dominant grape in Rheinhessen is Muller-Thurgau, followed by Riesling, Sylvaner, Scheurebe, and several others.


White Wine, Riesling, Spätlese

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.
