A. Zirnhelt Riesling Vin D’Alsace

A. Zirnhelt Riesling Vin D'Alsace

Update: June 2013: Another 6 months bottle age has turned this offering into a much drier experience with greater savouriness. It’s bone dry. Aromas of freshly sliced lime; the citrus zing showing in the flavour profile via lemony elements typical of Riesling. The acid is refreshing and vibrant, and would mix with – cut through – most oil-based foods. A very juicy wine with a minerally finish, making it more alluring. Yum Yum.

Claus C. Jacob German Riesling: BIN END

April 23, 2012
Claus C. Jacob Riesling

It is pretty much impossible to find anything from Germany that doesn’t break the bank here in Shanghai and now this one we did find is almost all gone. I think we have here, a summer aperitif and a great partner to fish, seafood, poultry and pasta dishes with cheese or cream based sauces. The wine is shipped by Thomas Rath through whom we found a very delightful Auselese and Spätelese in 2010.

Smaragd Rieslings – which must be more than 12.5 percent with less than.09 percent residual sugar – are the richest, most concentrated and full-bodied, and longest lived of the three categories. Delicate aromas of apple and ripe mango are riper than the palate, which shows refreshing green apple and Asian pear.
