2016 Bergschrund Mosel Feinherb Riesling

Carved out over millenia by the river that shares its name, the Mosel Valley is one of the most breathtaking appellations in the world. Steep, terraced vineyards line the valley walls and create some of the most versatile, age-worthy wines found anywhere. This German Riesling clearly illustrates what the region is famous for: stone-fruit flavors focused by exemplary acidity. Delicious on its own, this white will also make a sublime complement for a variety of dishes, from Thai curry to pork chops.
