2015 Riesling Halbtrocken "Handwerk" (Melsheimer)

Melsheimer, Riesling "Handwerk" Halbtrocken, Mosel, Germany 2015 {sustainable}

100% Riesling

LEMON & PINEAPPLE, PRISTINE SLATE & FLINT, UBER-ERFRISCHEND, JA!

It might not be fair to outright assert that Mosel Rieslings represent the absolute epitome of the grape’s signature combination of intense minerality and unremitting tropical citrus, but the region is certainly a contender for Riesling “world capital” status. The wines ain’t cheap, but the quality is reliably very high. The Melsheimer estate crafts this cuvée from grapes grown in several of its prized vineyards, striving for exceptional balance. The result is identified as “feinherb,” which basically lies between “dry” and “off-dry,” but the residual sugar here is very slight. Delicious!

Serving Suggestion: Japanese squid salad w/ sesame, cucumbers, & pickled plum. Hawaiian pizza w/ tomato, garlic, & pineapple (ham optional).
