Aromatic apricots and white flowers open this dry “Ortswein” (village wine) from the historic hill castle town of Saarburg. Grown in stony grey slate soils, it delivers confident, fruity flavors with a stormy herbal edge and lingering grapefruit finish. A wine that both knows where she is going and possesses the inner drive and momentum to get there. Drinking beautifully now but will benefit from a few years in the bottle.
The laser focus of this confident Riesling favors fare with a gentler edge: try smoked trout, cured meats, or even a fresh herb-crusted chicken.
