"This opens up to gorgeously pure scents of coconut, grapefruit, mango and white minerals. The wine is gorgeously silky on the palate, with cassis
and herbs giving it freshness and cachet. The after-taste is an explosion of flavors. What a great effort! 2018-2025" (FWR)
Originally formed from cooled volcanic magma, the mix of diabase soil and Devonian slate found on the Saarburger Rausch produces a distinctive, one-of-a-kind terroir. This complex and aromatic Riesling is rich with contradictions. Stately yet sleek with deep expressive notes of dried yellow pears, apricots and a dark, spicy minerality. Layers of creamy, nuanced yet simultaneously bright yellow citrus flavors eventually mark a steady descent into a long, juicy, off-dry finish. This kind of stately grace comes from depth, not width.
A beautiful complement to a wide range of classic Riesling pairings, from baked monkfish to roasted rabbit to Asian-spiced short ribs.
