Monchhof Mosel-Saar-Ruwer Estate Riesling 2007

Member Review by atonalprime:

quaffable and effervescent when it lingers on your tongue. A sweet, ripe apple/peach/miracle fruit lends its taste to the body and lets the wine stand alone. Have now tried it in tandem with green chili burritos, as well as roasted chicken. Perhaps not the best with the roasted chicken, but the wine really went well with the spicy green chili.

Robert Eymael leads since 1994 the Wine Estate. Joke and humor paired with a quality-conscious individualism, describe his philosophy, which reflects itself in the inimitable style of its Riesling wines. The Mönchhof, formerly in the possession of the Cisterian abbey Himmerod, is one of the oldest Wine 'Estates at the Mosel. Pope Alexander III already confirmed the first Wine Estate possession of the abbey in the year 1177 in Uerzig. The monks of Himmerod built the wine-cellar at that time and in 1509 the estate you can admire today. In 1804, after the secularization by Napoleon, our family could acquire the Wine Estate in Paris.

Excellent Riesling. Very crisp and refreshing tasting, not too sweet, and well balanced. Sweet and tart, pale straw yellow, very delicate. Grapefruit, honey, and floral flavors.

This is the entry level Riesling from the famed Monchhof estate. The Eymael family purchased this estate in 1804 at which point the it was under control by the monks of Himmerod. A great family history that includes the great John Jacob Astor, one of New York City's first great businessmen.

Wine Tasting NotesThis wine first feels like biting into a ripe white peach, juicy, rich, creamy and sweet, with a full aroma. Yet the wine offers a great minerality and acidity to balance the sweetness that leaves your mouth watering for more. It is delicious by itself, or with seafood. Its bright acidity tones work well with a variety of cheeses or pastas that have a touch of cream. Serve lightly chilled.
