Dreissigacker, Riesling Bechtheimer Rheinhessen 2013

Schatzi Wines, Milan NY.

This is AP # 07 14.

A blend from eight different sites, four planted on active limestone and four on clay. Vineyards include Stein, Rosengarten, and seven hectares of estate vines in the Geyersberg, north-east of Bechtheim.

Gold. Flush with generosity, major heartbeat and a resonant, savory side to the varietal. The palate is well juiced and crackles with minerality, umami flavors and a demi-glace richness. Bone broth and quinoa, caraway and mesquite, and the finish is long and poised on the cliff’s edge. Now.
