Peter Adler Auslese Riesling - $11.50
Overall Rating: Value:
An amazing value for Auslese (certified ripeness) fruit from Germany's Mosel River Valley. Classic light petroleum and mineral nose yet flavor sweet and soft with hints of apricots and vanilla cake. A great German staple with pork of all kinds and cheeses from soft Brie to hard Gouda.
Mosel is steep slate hillside river banks. Auslese is higher quality than Spatlese which is higher than Kabinett. Higher level of ripeness mean higher potential alcohol or sweetness. Cool climate means acidity can still be here with sweetness. No added sugar allowed! Grape: Riesling 100% From: Mosel, Germany Oaking: none
