"Fresh and racy, this features firm minerality and flavors of ripe apricot, baked pear and guava. Lush midpalate, finishing with notes of clove and hints of basil. Expressive. Drink now through 2018. 15,000 cases imported." (WS)

Winery Notes:
Founded in 1177 by monks, the Mönchhof estate (monk’s house) was acquired by the Eymael family in 1804 from Napoleon. Today, Robert Eymael leads the estate recognized for its high quality from the entry level Estate Riesling to the finest single vineyard wines.

Tasting note:
A blend of the fruit from Roberts’s Ürzig, Zeltingen, and Erden properties. Wonderful iron mineral details in the nose. On the palate, the wine exhibits a refreshing citrus component with pear and white peach fruit. Perhaps the juiciest QbA Robert has produced to date. The fruit is bright, focused and very crystalline in style.

Food affinity:
Great to enjoy on its own, but also great with salads and spicy dishes or fusion cuisine.
