Natalie's Score: 90/100

The term Feinherb is not regulated by law, but it usually refers to a German white wine that' either halbtrocken or slightly sweeter than halbtrocken, which refers to wines that have 9-18 grams of residual sugar. So it's neither completely dry or sweet, but rather somewhere in between. This lovely German white wine made from the country's flagship Riesling grape is very aromatic offering notes of fresh white peach, lime and citrus. Pair with shellfish.

Riesling Feinherb food pairings: pork schnitzel with applesauce, veal Porterhouse steak, grilled seafood.

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Beautiful Mosel Riesling, off dry, integrated medium alcohol 11%, mouthwatering acidity, balanced. Ripe pear, canned mandarin oranges, orange blossom. Pairs well with sushi, Vietnamese shrimp rice rolls. Tasted 2015 vintage in March 2018. 92 points
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:

Mosel Rieslings are some of most exciting wines to enjoy and Fitz Willi, you fit the bill! Honey, apple, ripe peach and juicy blood orange notes linger on. It’s medium-bodied zesty and crisp. A great intro to Mosel typicity. Enjoy with spicy Thai chili beef skewers. Tasted March 2018 by @sommsosa.
The 2015 vintage for this Mosel Qualitätswein Riesling Feinherb was very warm and notes of tropical fruit, white stonefruit and soft citrus are evident in this perfectly elegant Fritz Willi Friedrich-Wilhelm-Gymnasium (2015) Riesling. Pair with a sunny day. - Community Wine Reviews
