Winemaker Notes

Ripe, tropical fruit notes of grapefruit, pineapple and papaya characterize the juicy Scheurebe from the Haardt Manderling with its luminous combination of sweet and sour on the finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Produced from 35 year old vines, the 2001 Scheurebe Spatlese Haardter Mandelring displays eucalyptus, freshly mowed grass, grapefruit, and pepper in its aromatics. Rich, layered, and exotic, this medium-bodied beauty is studded with fresh herbs, papaya, mangoes, pineapples, lemons, and red currants. This is a succulent, powerful, extroverted wine with a wild streak. Its medium-bodied, velvety-textured character reveals a sumptuous, exceptionally long finish.

Muller-Catoir

View all wine

This sunny and relatively dry region served for many years as a German tourist mecca and was associated with low cost, cheerful wines. But since the 1980s, it has gained a reputation as one of Germany’s more innovative regions, which has led to increased international demand.

Riesling

View all wine

A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining easily identifiable typicity. This versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Riesling is best known in Germany and Alsace, and is also of great importance in Austria. The variety has also been particularly successful in Australia’s Clare and Eden Valleys, New Zealand, Washington, cooler regions of California, and the Finger Lakes region of New York.

In the Glass

Riesling typically produces wine with relatively low alcohol, high acidity, steely minerality and stone fruit, spice, citrus and floral notes. At its ripest, it leans towards juicy peach, nectarine and pineapple, while cooler climes produce Rieslings more redolent of meyer lemon, lime and green apple. With age, Riesling can become truly revelatory, developing unique, complex aromatics, often with a hint of petrol.

Perfect Pairings

Riesling is quite versatile, enjoying the company of sweet-fleshed fish like sole, most Asian food, especially Thai and Vietnamese (bottlings with some residual sugar and low alcohol are the perfect companions for dishes with substantial spice) and freshly shucked oysters. Sweeter styles work well with fruit-based desserts.

Sommelier Secret

It can be difficult to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling, and German labeling laws do not make things any easier. Look for the world “trocken” to indicate a dry wine, or “halbtrocken” or “feinherb” for off-dry. Some producers will include a helpful sweetness scale on the back label—happily, a growing trend.
