How could you not love Rieslings when there are gems like this out there and this wine will only get better with age
Description: Although this is medium-dry wine (Spätlese) there a nice balance between sweet and dry. The wine shows bright yellow gold in colour with a medium+ intense nose. This wine features Ylang Ylang, petrol, peach, apple pie, honey, orange, ginger, pink grapefruit and limestone. Full body with good acidity and a long length.
Interesting Point: C.H Berres consistently makes great Rieslings
Drink now or in the next 20 years on its own or and pair it with jerk chicken.
