Max Ferd Richter Zeppelin Mülheimer Sonnenlay Riesling Kabinett 2007

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Rich for a Kabinett, with ripe peaches, honeydew melon and lime-drizzled papaya. Explosive fruit flavors and just hints of the Mosel's signature mineral on the crisp finish. With its medium body and ripe, powerful fruit, this Riesling drinks more like a Spätlese. Great vintage for German Riesling.

Wines from this vineyard were served on the zeppelin airships of yesteryear as depicted on the label. Light and juicy, this Riesling displays ripe apple and sweet lemon and finishes with a note of slate that this vineyard is known for.
