Peter Mertes Riesling Platinum 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Wines do not arise by themselves; they are created by a conjuncture of vines, countryside, climate and the labour of men. Nowadays the idea is predominant, that everything is possible with the help of technology. This opinion is not shared by us, the vintners of the Saar region. Our beautiful countryside offers different soils to the vines in which they can flourish. They need a long vegetation period due to our relatively northern location, and they therefore have a lot of time in their maturing phase to develop a differentiated aroma. This is of unequal value especially for our elegant Spätburgunder and Riesling grapes. The experience has been enriched over generations and enables us to labour towards the best for our wines with respect for our landscape, scenery and in harmony with nature.

Peter Mertes established his first winery in 1924 in the Minheim village in Mosel, Germany. His family had a history of grape-growing and supplying their fruit for other winemakers, but he wanted to take it a step further and produce the wines from grapes grown at his own vineyards. In the 1950s, his son-in-law, Dr. Gustav Willkomm, began producing wine in the Rhine and then Pfalz regions, thus expanding the business. In the 1960s, the portfolio grew to include wines from the Reingau and Nahe. Today, the Peter Mertes brand produces wine from all over Germany as well as other global locations, offering a wide range of styles.  Read less

For a very inexpensive wine this was very nice. I would definitely buy this again.
