Georg Albrecht Schneider, Riesling Trocken "Vom Kalk", Rheinhessen, Germany 2016
TANGY WHITE PEACH & LIME, CHALKY MINERAL, ORANGE BLOSSOM Clinging to the steep, iron-rich inclines of Nierstein’s Red Slope, the vineyards of Georg Albrecht Schneider occupy a precious vantage point overlooking the Rhein. Family ownership goes back seven generations yet the reputation surrounding their wines stems as much from current excellence (and exuberant character) as it does from historical significance. Shimmeringly bright acidity and fruit invigorate the palate, with tantalizing aromas and a pristine finish. Fantastisch! Serving Suggestion: Crayfish-cucumber salad w/ mayo, dill, horseradish, & scallions. Apple-carrot slaw w/ rice vinegar, ginger, sesame oil, chili flakes, & lime.
