Weinkeller Erbach Riesling
Winzer Von Erbach
Germany - Rheingau

This southwest-facing vineyard has particularly deep loose-clay and meadow soils. This area's name is derived from the good honey-producing plants that grew on the hill before it was cultivated. They are situated next to the famous Steinberg vineyard at the same altitude level.

Round and refreshing wine with light touches of lemon and lime on the nose. Slightly sweet mouthfeel, with juicy and fruity flavors.

wplogo"The liter bottle (a third more than the standard 750 milliliters) makes this tasty summer white an especially good value and an ideal take along for picnics or patio parties. This is good, basic Riesling — dry to satisfy the purist but fruity enough to appeal to anyone who prefers a little sweetness. It also has wide distribution throughout the Washington area. ABV: 11.5 percent - Dave McIntyre."
