2012 Riesling Kabinett "Reiler Mullay-Hofberg" (Melsheimer)
Melsheimer, Riesling "Reiler Mullay-Hofberg" Kabinett, Mosel, Germany 2012100% Riesling TANGY KIWI & LEMONADE, SLATE, FIRM & FIERCE YET OPULENT Clocking in at a lean, clean 10.5 % alcohol and bearing only the faintest kiss of residual sugar, this dryish gem is stony, vaguely tropical, and vibrating with raw, Riesling-rific energy. The haunting elegance of the Mosel chimes through loud and clear. Thorsten Melsheimer, the estate’s current torchbearer, employs only organic methods (certified biodynamic as of 2013) and lets his vineyards’ excellent terroir speak for itself... Serving Suggestion: Smoked trout w/ smashed potato & thyme. Triple cream cheeses.
