Winemaker's Notes

#70 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

This wine is a fruity Rheingau Riesling with nice acidity and noticeable, natural residual sugar.

Selective harvest, gentle processing of the must, systematic clarification, slow fermentation and careful finishing are the basics for this traditional Vollrads' Riesling.

This wine pairs great with dished like Sushi, Sashimi or Curries. The wine has perfect balance of acidity and natural sweetness and has the right characteristics to stand up to such exciting dishes.

The low alcohol content in this wine makes it a perfect wine for the summer months.

Critical Acclaim

"Vivid apricot, peach and lemon aromas and flavors are matched to a juicy texture, lingering beautifully on the long finish. Hard not to drink now, but this should develop well. Drink now through 2020. 4,000 cases made."
