2016 Riesling Trocken "Vom Kalk" (Schneider, Georg Albrecht)
Georg Albrecht Schneider, Riesling Trocken "Vom Kalk", Rheinhessen, Germany 2016TANGY WHITE PEACH & ZESTY LIME, CHALKY MINERAL, ORANGE BLOSSOM Clinging to the steep, stoney, iron-rich inclines of Nierstein's Red Slope, the vineyards of Georg Albrecht Schneider indeed occupy a precious vantage point overlooking the Rhein. The family ownership of these 37 acres can be traced back seven generations, and yet the reputation surrounding the wines stems as much from their current excellence and exuberant character as it does from notions of historical significance. Shimmeringly bright acidity and wholesomely healthy fruit invigorates our palates while tantalizing aromas and a pristine finish leaves smiles on our faces. Fantastisch! Serving Suggestion: Crayfish & cucumber salad w/ mayo, dill, horseradish, & scallions. Apple-cabbage-carrot slaw w/ rice vinegar, ginger, sesame oil, & lime.
