Kirsten scored this wine: 89/100

Pleasant cherry, blackberry and chocolate notes carry on to the palate, with a lightly peppered and smokey medium-long finish. Great with a grilled steak and a roasted/grilled vegetable salad.

Fritz's

Gunderloch Fritz's Riesling 2013

Rheinhessen Q.B.A., Germany

Kirsten scored this wine: 90/100

Pale straw yellow in colour with a bright clarity that matches the aromas of tart lemon, grapefruit and crisp green apple. Also has enticing notes of petrol and minerality. Refreshing blast of citrus fruit and apple with your first sip. This is a wine that will pair wonderfully with spicy Asian fare like moo shu shrimp or pork, as well as citrus marinated seafood and fish dishes.
