Seebrich, Riesling Spatlese "Niersteiner Hipping", Rheinhessen, Germany 2012 [organic] 100% Riesling LIGHTLY SWEET & TART, GREEN APPLE, LEMON, PEACH & HONEY This is Spätlese reaching its logical conclusion - a perfect balance of refreshing acidity, and the lovely ripe fruit and honey character of grapes harvested slightly late. The Rhine's Nierstein village is home to the steep Hipping hillside vineyard, with its famous red slate and clay soil contributing a rich peach character to its wines. This one is a perfect example of the quality coming from this historic piece of land recognized as on of Germany's finest vineyards. Serving Suggestions: This is phenomenal with spicy dishes with undercurrents of sweetness such as Szechuan peppercorn squid. Smoked trout salad with sauerkraut and thin slices of apple & kiwi.
