Wines of Germany and the folks at TasteLive. The final Riesling tasting for the month of October featured the wines of Schloss-Reinhartshausen. Schloss-Reinhartshausen has a long and storied history of producing world class Reisling since the 14th Century. For those of you who failed math, that's a long time.
We tasted four wines on Oct. 30, including the '07 Old Vines and '07 Fountain Blue. The wines were across the board very nice, and though I receved these wines as complimentary samples, I'd love to own more of each. I'm starting with a note on my favorite of the night, the 2007 Erbach Schlossberg Monopole Erstes Gewachs Riesling. This baby showed lots of petrol on the nose and a crisp acidity and minerality. Full of lemony fruit, peaches, and an almost savory palate. Full bodied and built to age for a while. Paired nicely with German brats and pommes anna. A nice classy wine.
