MyPfalz (1) Monthly Riesling January:
Rotliegendes Riesling S 2008
Terroir! If you like a wine that tastes of where it comes from, this is your wine. Of course, you have to like Riesling, too, but would you be reading this if not?
Dr. Wehrheim Rotliegendes Riesling 2008 is a dry wine with a pale color of straw. Nice mineral, hay and yellow stone fruit aromas of medium intensity open the nose to continue on the palate, where also citrus fruit is coming into the picture. The typical high Riesling acidity is incorporated and the overall impression of this light- to medium-bodied wine is very pleasant, summery-fresh, with quite some length. (13% abv.) I really like it!
The Kastanienbusch has a mixture of soils, other parcels are Spätburgunder sites. The total size is about 80 hectares.
