2017 Riesling, Kabinett "Trittenheimer Apotheke" (Bollig-Lehnert)
Bollig-Lehnert, Riesling Kabinett "Trittenheimer Apotheke", Mosel, Germany 2017100% Riesling BAKED APPLE, JUICY LIME, FLORAL, LIGHTLY SWEET Stefan Bollig is an old friend of ours who makes his lovely Mosel Valley Rieslings in the traditional style: juicy, lightly sweet, greatly rich and layered with complex flavors of apples, citrus, and petrol. Through the front window of his winery/home climbs the steep, slatey Goldtropschen hillside he farms just across the street, so close he can hear birds chirping on the vines from his front yard. Although this Riesling is touched with a hint of sweetness, it has enough mouth-watering acidity to reach a perfect balance. Delicious! Serving Suggestion: Smoked salmon with potato leek soup as we had in Stefan's kitchen.
