Dr. Nagler, Riesling Trocken "Rüdesheimer Steinkaut", Rheingau, Germany 2016
ASSERTIVE LEMON & GRANNY SMITH. RIPE, RICH, & RACY!
Unesco World Heritage site? Check! From Riesling’s native region? Check!! Two centuries and six generations of Nagler family estate-grown goodness? Check!!! It’s just what the Doctor ordered. The Rheingau isn’t simply the less-encountered yet OG appellation for Riesling production, it’s also the epicenter of Riesling ripeness, where Germany’s weightiest, most concentrated examples of the famously delicate, chiseled variety are born – typically fermented to dryness. Sehr schön!
Serving Suggestion: Roast salmon filet w/ hot potato salad, pickled shallots, & mustard vinaigrette. Smoked cheeses.
