2017 Doctor Riesling GG trocken - VDP.GROSSE LAGE

The Wine of the Month is our 2017 Doctor Riesling GG trocken VDP.GROSSE LAGE. Oliver Bock, famous journalist and wine gourmet in the Rheingau, describes this wine as "one of the best wines" in his wine blog.

"Delicate nose with yellow fruit and a very fine mineral element. Elegantly understated on the palate revealing glimpses of ripe fruit, salty minerality and refreshing acidity."
Michael Schmidt for jancisrobinson.com 2018

This wine is a perfect companion to fried scallops with lime risotto.






1997 Bernkastel Doctor Riesling Spätlese

Matured Riesling wines have their place between the world wine leaders as shown by the great final bid for our 1959 Trockenbeerenauslese in Trier. Therefore, our wine of the month is a matured 1997 Spätlese from the famous Bernkasteler Doctor:

"Brilliant bright yellow colour. Aromas of yellow almost exotic fruits, apricots and lychees. No signs of advanced maturity. The well integrated sweetness melts nicely with the fresh and vivid acidity on the palate. Perfectly balanced with a long finish."
Tom Drieseberg (February 2017)

This wine is a perfect companion to grilled spicy fish. Also with Asian dishes like prawns with coriande or pork meat sweet-sour.
