2016 Riesling Off-Dry "Paradies" (Staffelter Hof, Weingut)
Weingut Staffelter Hof, Riesling Off-Dry "Paradies", Mosel, Germany 2016100% Riesling KIWI & KEY LIME, GRANNY SMITH, RIPE YET RAZORY Germany’s Mosel, while probably not the precise origin of the Riesling grape, is practically a prism that focuses the variety’s unremitting personality into its most distinctively defined, dictionary-worthy depictions. In fact, the razory zenith reached can, at times, be a bit much for some of us, but this offering from “the home of the wolf” and the estate’s Klein family beautifully tempers that fierce freshness with ripe, round citrus, and a kiss of sweetness. Serving Suggestion: Grilled salmon w/ spicy watermelon gazpacho. Semi-soft sheep’s milk cheeses.
