There’s a well-judged touch of sweetness that’s great with spicy food.

White currant, lime, fennel and basil on the nose anticipate the combination of lively, tart-edged juiciness with cooling green herbal infusion that subsequently characterizes a polished inner-mouth performance. While legally trocken – not to mention impeccably balanced – it isn’t labeled as such. Thanks to its harboring only 11.5% alcohol, this bottling finishes with a delightful sense of buoyancy that complements its unique combination of soothing cling, infectious juiciness and invigoratingly seedy crunchiness. What’s more, it displays regionally typical accents of smoke and stone. I could drink a lot of this! (David Schildknecht, Vinous, January 2020)

Acceptable dry Riesling, but one can easily do better. Nice acidity in the finish but some off flavors.

New Year's Eve starting with a deliciously acidic and tangerine blastoff. Flinty, lemon/lime and aromatic. Couldn't ask for more from a $15 Bi Rite purchase.
