Riesling 'Der Elegante' Kabinett Trocken 2015, Weingut Weegmüller, Pfalz

Tasting Note

A delicate nose with hints of spice and pineapple. Rich but dry, the palate is packed with tropical fruits. Lovely intensity and rapier-like acidity on the finish.

Producer Note

Weegmüller are the oldest winemakers in the Palatinate region having made wine there for 300 years. They farm their vineyards organically and restrict yields to gain concentration and weight. Their wines are wonderful, rich and food friendly.

Vineyard

The grapes are produced in the outstanding vineyard sites of the Mittelhaardt. Almost 90% of Weingut Weegmuller's vineyards are located in the top classified region of Haardt. This district takes its name from the low-lying Haardt mountains, which play a vital role in the terroir here.

Winemaking

Germany has revolutionised its winemaking over recent years. This wine epitomises the new style of German wines, which have a wonderful balance of fruit, acidity and relatively low alcohol. The fermentation for this wine took place in large wooden barrels. The wine rested in barrel, prior to bottling six months later.

Serving Suggestion

This wine makes a wonderful partner to exotic Asian cuisine and light seafood dishes.
