Straight from the vineyards of Dr. Hermann in Germany, a location said to be where the Romans made wine as far back as 2,000 years ago, this vibrant Riesling further ferments the quality of this long time winemaker. From the time Dr. Hermann from the Slate Riesling 2013 hits your glass, you are intrigued, invited, and charmed by the wines frizzante and crisp golden appearance.
The nearby remains of a Roman wine press dating from the second century AD show that the Romans had recognised the extraordinary potential of this location some 2000 years ago.
On colour, the Dr. Hermann from the Slate Riesling 2013 holds a crisp golden hue. On the nose, green apple, lemon, and pear are noted. On the palate, boisterous golden delicious apple, lemon, refined acidity with light mineral touches produce a medium finish mouth-feel.
Dr. Hermann from the Slate Riesling 2013 is truly an enjoyable off-dry Riesling that we paired with danablu cheese and can see pairing well with something as simple as a great conversation.
