"A very minerally version, with concentrated acidity and flavors of grapefruit, green apple and savory herb. This is enriched by tangerine and shiso leaf notes, featuring hints of lushness. Fresh and crunchy on the finish. Drink now through 2038. 4,000 cases made." (WS)

Winery Notes:
Estate:
Founded in 1177 by monks,the Mönchhof(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:
Delicious. The moderate sweetness and intense apricot, mango, pineapple and lime notes are punctuated by a racy structure. Vanilla cream and mineral flavors add complexity, and it’s all precisely balanced and long.

Food Affinity:
Rich food with sweetness and or spiciness in the preparation (i.e. pork tenderloin with caramelized onions reduction, raspberry and blue cheese), spicy Asian dishes and hard cheeses.
