Max Ferd. Richter Mulheimer Sonnenlay Auslese 2011

External Review:

The quality of Richter's wine has been "sky high" since the '20s, when Rieslings from the estate were featured on the Graf Zeppelin. This wine was bottled as a tribute to those glory days - fruity, spicy, with brilliant pear, citrus and apple flavors that finish with crisp, tasty acidity.

Slaty character typical for the vineyard. Its wines were served on the Zeppelin in the '20s and '30s. Very refreshing Riesling, displaying rich fruit of apple and lemon with a stylish and lengthy finish. A great sipping or aperitif wine, or with light dishes like seafood or poultry.

This famous label commemorates the era of the Zeppelin, when first class passengers were poured Riesling from the small village of Mulheim. Today, Mulheim resident Dirk Richter produces this terrific value-priced white, slightly sweet with intense white peach and citrus flavors and a crisp, refreshing finish.

A naturally light, racy Kabinet finished in a drier style, highlighting fruit notes and a minerally quality. Enjoy this wine with Mandarin chicken and pork-fried rice.

The flavors of this wine will make you think of crunching into a crisp Granny Smith apple. A little sweetness followed by tart acidity provides a nice fruity balance. Finishing with a light minerality, this wine is a great everyday sipper to pair with light snacks and seafood.

According to legend, this Riesling was the most popular wine served on the Graf Zeppelin airship during its transatlantic crossings in the 1930s. Unsurprising, given its crisp acidity, juicy fruit and convenient stelvin enclosure. On the sweet side, but never cloying, layered with green apple, apricot and pear, laced with a stony minerality that balances perfectly. The Zeppelin makes for an awesome sipping wine, but can easily be served with any spicy Mexican or Asian fare.

There's snap to this white, but the apple, mineral and spice flavors could use more intensity. Drink now through 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
