2016 Riesling "Save Water, Drink Riesling - Free" (alcohol free) (Allendorf)

Allendorf, Riesling "Free" (alcohol free), Rheingau, Germany 2016 100% Riesling

GREEN APPLE & LEMON CURD, ZESTY & FRESH, AIN’T BOOZE

Is this wine “dry,” you ask? Well, it depends on what you mean by that. On the one hand, it’s certainly got a touch of sweetness. On the other, how dry it is! It’s naturally de-alcoholized for your imbibing (or non-imbibing?) pleasure. These Rheingau Riesling grapes were harvested at minimal ripeness prior to fermentation, resulting in a wine whose initial alcohol content was relatively low and whose residual sugar remained modest. Vacuum distillation got rid of the booze, leaving behind a wine which is elegantly, recognizably Riesling with bright acidity and gentle sweetness. Bottoms up!

Serving Suggestion: Ham w/ black eyed peas, & stewed collards w/ garlic & truffle cheddar. Aioli kraut & smoked carrot “lox."

2017 Riesling QbA Trocken "Save Water Drink Riesling" (Allendorf)

Allendorf, Riesling QbA Trocken "Save Water Drink Riesling", Rheingau, Germany 2017 100% Riesling

PINEAPPLE & KIWI. RIPE, RACY, & RESTRAINED!

Germany’s Rheingau is almost certainly the precise origin of the ancient variety known as Riesling. Typically and classically produced in a dry/trocken style (as is the case with this example), these ambassadorial whites aren’t as common as we might like, and they’re often more expensive than we would prefer. Ulrich Allendorf represents the second generation of his family’s 70 year old, completely non-irrigated estate, crafting clean, vibrant wines that sing with uninhibited, Riesling-ish energy and elegance.

Serving Suggestion: Singapore noodles w/ eggs, yellow onion, bell peppers, & curry powder. Pizza with pineapple (don’t hate!), anchovies, & capers.
