Hexamer Meddersheimer Rheingrafenberg Riesling ‘Quarzit’, 2006

February 11, 2008

~$17US, 100% Riesling, Nahe GermanyUber-fresh, and little spritzy. Canned peaches, definite lime and a little gravel. Extremely fruity and concentrated. Creamy mouthfeel, with very integrated mineral flavors – a little slack in the acid department, so the overall impression is quite ripe – but the quality of the fruit is top-class. A little bitterness as it moves towards the finish, but the finish itself is nice and long.Overall, this effort is more ripe and decadent and less complex, but the wine shows plenty of vineyard and regional character to give it uniqueness. Perfect with a wide range of food . I’d recommend this to Riesling beginners, but it is easily enjoyed by all.
