Mosel St Riesling 2007
External Reviews for Mosel St Riesling
Keeping label information to a minimal, this Riesling was produced by Ersnt Clüsserath in Trittenheim to represent what most consumers expect from a traditional Mosel-style Riesling: juicy, lively and refreshing with a bit of minerality. This wine is a blend of two different styles of vinification-- traditional: fermented with wild yeast in old 1000L oak barrels, and modern: cultured yeast in stainless steal tanks which also gives the wine length and density. Pair this wine with spicy food, almost all Asian food, as well as barbecue ribs or chicken.
This refreshing and extremely well-priced Riesling offers pretty notes of peach, apple, and lime on the nose. The palate has a touch of sweetness but the wine is dry in the grand scheme of German Rieslings. A delightful and fun find.
