Struktur Riesling 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Many people incorrectly assume that Riesling wines are all sweet, but in reality they span a wide range between dry and sweet. Indeed, many wine conoisseurs rank fine rieslings as some of the most intriguing wines in the world, due to their amazing complexity on the nose and palate. This beauty is from the home of Riesling, the Mosel Valley in Germany, where it is grown in some of the steepest vineyards in the world. The wine is fermented in stainless steel and held on the lees for 2 months before being put into bottle, unoaked, to allow the fruit flavors to really shine through. A very long ripening period allows for a lovely fragrance of pear and apple, followed by a distinct minerality which is typical of excellent rieslings. Lush flavors of ripe apple and exotic fruits linger on the palate with a touch of residual sweetness and minerality. Rieslings are famous for their ability to pair with spicy dishes, and this wine would also go great with white meats or seafood. Struktur could age for a few years, and should be served well-chilled.

I really like this wine, light & sweet but not too sweet. I can even drink this wine with dinner.
