Our pick for the family’s Thanksgiving dinner table. Full-on exotic “fruit salad” palate tappers off with refreshing and cleansing acidity to perfectly balance the initial sweetness. Never cloying. Everyone will enjoy whether novice or aficionado. Even your teetotalling Grandma! And the price is right!
Planted in 1902, the Longuicher Herrenberg vineyard is a steep, higher section of un-grafted vines, grown on devonian slate soils with volcanic incusions which make the soil appear red. Fermented spontaneously in old, neutral 1200 liter Mosel fuder (oblong shaped oak cask).
“Very juicy with tons of peach, apricot and guava. However, this also has so much minty and tarragon freshness, the balance of fruit and mineral acidity joyfully spot-on. Drink or hold.” – 93 points, James Suckling
