Riesling Grand Cru Hengst, 2001

Domaine Josmeyer


Tasting note: A dry Riesling, a just a little residual sugar - with an exotic and aromatic character, which reveals rose and apricot as well as mineral and smoked flavours. Its structure is open, rich and ample. Both concentrated and fine, it has a long finish.

Dry, yet with mouth - watering citrus lemon fruit flavours and green orchard fruits. There is added complexity by a minerally and chalky earthiness giving the vineyard expression. This isn't surprising. Josmeyer biololigal and biodynamic pratices have nothing to do with the holistic and natural approach to winemaking starting with his grapes in the vineyard.

Serve with fine seafish: bar, turbot, elbot, skate, monkfish and more. Likes lobster and crayfish. Try it with sushi. Enhances the saltiness of aged cheeses such old counties, Gouda or Parmesan.
