Food Pairings for Peter Mertes Riesling Spätlese
I bought a 50cl bottle of this wine for ten pounds.It is from the Rhine valley in Germany and is made from the Reisling grape.It is harvested very late in the year in order to allow the devfelopment of a fungus called Botrytis which contributes to the taste of the wine..I drank my bottle last weekend with a plate of bread and blue cheese.It is obviously very sweet almost like honey or syrup and there is plenty of fruit there [think peaches or apricots].I enjoyed it and thought it the equal of a good Sauternes
A fruity late harvest wine with a mineralic taste and aromas of peach and melon. Light and lively with a pleasant sweetness and freshness. Pairs well with meat and fish dishes, salads or cold cuts.
