Schatzel Riesling 2016 Bottling Note

People say that German wine is complicated but armed with a little knowledge, it's really not so hard. If the wine comes in a green bottle, it's from the Mosel and likely to be light and delicate. Brown, like this one, means it's from the Rhine and will be richer and fruitier. "Ah," you'll say, "but aren't most German wines sweet?" Well no, many of them are dry these days. If it doesn't say dry or trocken on the label, then have a look at the alcohol content. If it's over 12%, it's bone dry. If it's between 10 and 12%, like this one, then it's off dry. There will be a little sugar but riesling is such an acidic grape that you probably won't even notice. This old family estate have been making wine for hundreds of years, and they're very good at it. So go on, give it a go.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Lots of white peach and citrus fruit character, tastes dry though there is a little residual sugar. Clean, with mouth-watering acidity, this is delicious now but will be even better if you can keep it a few years to fatten out a bit.
