50 Degree Riesling 2013

Rheingau, GermanyNamed in honour of the 50th degree of latitude that runs through the Rheingau, this is a juicy, easy and approachable wine. Classic nose of honeyed pear, apricot, pearch blossom and light nectarine, with just a slight fuzzy grip around the edges. There’s an underlay of waxy, petrol sheen, typical of Rheingau, and a pithy clementine that lingers on the appropriately bitter finish.Tasted: 23 August 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 21.00 private wine shops Producer: G.H. von MummGrape: Riesling
