Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely nose of peach, apple and minerality, followed by a dewy palate that repeats and adds a slight touch of honey. Dry with good acidity and a lingering peach/citrus finish. Enjoy with fresh seafood, salads, or white meats.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is a wonderful expression of Mosel Riesling. 2012 vintage. 11?v. Pale straw. Refreshing acidity, crisp mouthfeel. Showing crisp Asian pear, granny smith apple, remarkably high intensity floral notes, with minerality. Medium persistence of crisp green apple and a hint of honey lingering for a medium finish. This is a Great value wine. Ideal pairing for red Thai coconut curry. Enjoy now. Tasted Dec 2015.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Yup, definitely rethink this Riesling folks! This wine carries intense fragrant, floral and honey notes on the nose. The palate shows an enticing concentration of stone fruit, green apple, lemon and mineral notes; along with some lip smacking acidity and a long puckering honeyed-lemon finish. This light bodied Mosel Riesling pairs very well Thai curries and fresh shellfish. Overall this wine is an incredible value for benchmark Mosel quality! Enjoy asap! Tasted Dec 2015.
