St. Urbans-Hof Wiltinger Riesling Atle Reben 2016 Saar Valley, Germany
This Old Vine (Alte Reben) riesling falls into the off-dry or slightly sweet (feinherb) category. Part of the reason is the wine that comes from these vines (which are as much as 114 years old) tend to be more concentrated and thus carry more of that highly coveted fruit sweetness. It’s the deep flavors of tree fruit, quince, and warm spice that all meld together with the natural acidity that comes from the soils in the Saar Valley that make this wine so special.
Pair with mildly spiced curries, grilled Bratwurst, pork schnitzel, or salads with tree fruits.
