Kloster Eberbach Rüdesheimer Berg Roseneck Riesling Feinherb 2014

Rheingau, GermanyWeathered slate mixed with loess and loam is what is what Rüdesheimer Berg Roseneck is all about. Minerality is the name of the game here and you taste it right from the get go in this bright, easy-sipping riesling from the middle tier labeled “Crescentia” – fruit from specific, high-quality vineyards, but from the very best sites. They can be dry or semi-dry wines, or in this case confusingly ‘feinherb’ a German term with no real translation other than “balance” in this case between sugar and acid. The fact is this is a delicious drinking riesling with floral notes, bright yellow fruit character, freshness and some sweetness in the back end. Perfect with chicken fish or your favourite sushi roll.Tasted: 03 November 2016Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 29.99 BCLS Producer: Kloster EberbachDistributors: Patagonia Imports Ltd.
