|2010 Riesling Herrenletten Alte Reben Weegmüller|
During the warmer months, wine and small dishes are served outside in the courtyard. Here, beautiful old stone walls and huge old wooden doors and gates give you the idea of how many generations have gone through this winery. In the winter months, people gather in the cellars. Lots of candles make for a beautiful atmosphere and underline the mystique that is spread within the old vaulted cellars.

At arrival, you are served a glass of bubbly and after that, you pick your own wine. Either by the glass or by the bottle. Lars' and my favorite is the Riesling Herrenletten from old vines. A dry wine with warm tones of yellow fruit, citrus, paired with a beautiful minerality, herbal hints, and high acidity. Rather intense (13,5% abv), but yet elegant and smooth. The residual sugar is notable, but makes it ideal for sipping away, especially when drinking without food.
Perhaps I will see you there some Thursday this year....?See my previous post about Weegmüller here.
