2016 Seehof Riesling Trocken,750ml

Availability: In stock (6)

Completely dry, very mineral and tart Riesling from the Rheinhessen. Citrus and green apples paired with stony minerals, absolutely salivating. After decades of producing and being considered as a bulk wine region, Rheinhessen has come into its own and showing itself to be a premium maker of elegant white wines.

From the mouth of the importer (Vom Boden):

"For the wines of the Rheinhessen, the key is limestone. This is what gives the wines their glycerin-induced sexiness. This is also what gives them the flair of acidity, a presence strong enough to counter the lavish extract and to keep the wines from feeling gooey or too heavy. It’s a delicate balance, to be honest, but when you nail it… well, it’s impressive.

At this moment I don’t know of an estate that makes a more profound “basic” estate wine than Florian at Seehof. The wines, both the dry and off-dry, are crystalline and pure with buoyant fruit and plenty of energy. For the money, you just can’t find anything better."
