More about this wine from Pfalz, Germany
Riesling is a bit of a controversial grape! Apparently back in the 70s and 80s, the Blue Nun Riesling brand invaded the states and everyone and their brother's grandma purchased the overly sweet and syrupy version of Riesling. The WA Crew is here though to show off what the grape can really do. Technically, this Riesling is off-dry meaning there is some sugar present, but it's balanced with the acidity aka the tartness. The Altes Schlösschen is that perfect balance and it's easy to tell that this winery has been in the family for 4 generations.

The balanced touch of sweetness makes this vino a great pair with spicy dishes. Think Thai takeout, hot wangs, curries, etc. etc. The nose is all about stone fruit like ripe peaches and apricots. The palate is crisp, balanced with delicate flavors of citrus, white peaches, and green apples that finishes with a touch of fruity sweetness.
