A perennial silly good value, the house entry level trocken wine is sourced from a combination of older vines found principally in the flats around Forst, as well as the younger vines of their 1er cru wines. My note: “Very good purity and filigree lightness of touch, with a good, light sense of minerality on the backend. In a word, lovely.” At 12% alcohol, and full of classy, poised Mittelhaardt character, this is an outstanding intro to the house, if not the region itself…..
“Deidesheim-typical scents of sweet corn and white peach mingle with saline suggestions of sweat and ocean spray, all of which anticipate the clear, juicy, generously fruity, invigoratingly pit- and mouthwateringly salt-tinged palate impression, leading to a long, buoyant, refreshing and positively lip-smacking finish. It’s hard to ask much more of a generic Riesling than this one delivers!” 90 points David Schildknecht for the 2014, NOT THE 2016 OFFERED HERE.
