Riesling Mulheimer Sonnenlay Zeppelin Richter 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Salty character typical for the vineyard. Wines from this vineyard were served in the luxurious restaurant of the Zeppelin airships in the 1920’s and 1930’s. A 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. Makers Notes "Light yellow. Soft aromas and flavors of lychee, apple, and pear are complemented by a subtle hint of brown spice. Generous and sweet on the palate, with aeration tasty notes of petrol and stone come to the fore, where this medium-bodied Riesling compares as a textbook example of the grape’s texture and flavor..." SWJ 11/12
