2017 Fritz Zimmer Riesling Spatlese

November 23, 2018 - Norman Bentley
#44-18-PIE

The wines from the Piesporter Goldtropfchen region in Germany are among the best Rieslings in the world. The Spatlese, which represents the second picking when the grapes are a little sweeter, is a great choice for most fowl dishes. We served it with Cornish Game Hen, which was our Thanksgiving dinner this year and it was delightful.

The wine has a fragrant nose and flavors which broadcast rays of sunshine, which highlight a perfect mix of acidity and sweet fruit. The prominent taste ticklers are a combination of apple, peach, and pear, with a light touch of citrus, leading to a crisp finish. The last time I sampled this wine, I said it was "lip smacking good"! The alcohol content is 7.5% and Norm's score is 90.

You can enjoy this fine Riesling with Turkey, Chicken, or a big platter of ripe juicy grapes and soft French Cheese.

score: 90

price: $11 - $15
