2016 Riesling Sweet "Knackarsch" (Staffelter Hof, Weingut)
Weingut Staffelter Hof, Riesling Sweet "Knackarsch", Mosel, Germany 2016100% Riesling LEMON-LIME & PEACH, LIGHT SWEETNESS, A THIRST QUENCHER! Every bit as lusty as its label cheekily suggests, this gem from Staffhelter Hof represents a perhaps more frivolous, fun side of the famously elegant, intellectual pleasures often offered by Mosel wines. It’s actually hard to stop sipping once you’ve begun as the satiating refreshment is simply the source of additional cravings! The amorous wolf depicted on the label is “Magnus,” the fabled guardian of the estate. Once you taste the wine, you’ll understand why he’s so excited. Serving Suggestion: Claypot crab w/ brown sugar, sesame, & glass noodles. Tropical slaw w/ pineapple, mango, cilantro, & lime juice.
