Maxford Richter Zeppelin Riesling Mosel Germany 2020Regular price $19.00
The estate of Max Ferd Richter has been passed down from father to son for ten generations over 300 years, producing world class Rieslings from some of the most esteemed vineyards in the Mosel. We were lucky enough to have the current progeny-at-the-helm (Constantin) in our shop recently to tell the epic story of the wines. For those of you lucky enough to meet him, you know. If you weren't so lucky, it's all here in the bottle.
This classic riesling has alluring aromas of pear and peach, with a perfumey minerality. The same lovely fruit dominates the palate carried by a silky mouthfeel. Bright acidity balances the sweetness of the fruit, finished by lingering chalky stone and citrus peel.
Food Ideas: blue cheese-stuffed chicken, Borscht(beet soup), bacon wrapped sea scallops, pesto pasta, panang curry
