Wine Review: This almost clear wine with slight yellow tones opens with a light pear bouquet with a slight hint of pineapple. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is round, slightly tangy, and shows some saline and minerality along with its lime like flavors. The finish is off dry, still tangy, and brief. This wine would pair nicely with coq au vin. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Selected healthy grapes from mountainside vineyards-including Breuer's top sites Berg Schlossberg and Nonnenberg are harvested at optimum maturity. Skin contact precedes fermentation and extended aging on the lees in oak ovals, in like manner to the top Cru bottlings. Careful assemblage results in an interplay of Rüdesheim's slate character with the more citric, floral personality of Rauenthal: The quintessence of powerful and ageworthy Rheingau Riesling.
