2015 Elbling Trocken (Hild)

Hild, Elbling, Upper Mosel, Germany 2015 {sustainable}

100% Elbling

CITRUS & PEAR, RESTRAINED WHITE FLOWERS, WAXY & FIRM

Just north of the French border and clinging to eastern outline of Luxembourg, Germany's Obermosel (Upper Mosel) features a viticultural world far different from the rightly-revered, Riesling-reigned Mosel appellation deeper inside the country. Here the topography and limestone soil is more like that of the upper Loire or Chablis. The Elbling grape knows what’s up, and its half-sibling Riesling had better not step. This rendition from Elbling icon, Matthias Hild is riper and richer than most, clocking in at 12% alcohol (as opposed to the more typical 10ish). This is wine for minimalists. Crystal-clean clarity and limestone leanness rule the day. Less is more...

Serving Suggestion: Smoked trout & potato salad w/ capers & dill. Snapper sushi w/ melt &/or flying fish roe.
