2013 Dr Lippold Empress Josephine's Riesling

"Sourced from vineyards in and around Urziger Wurzgarten, coming from excellent vineyard sites. Empress Josephine's Riesling was picked at Spatlese levels, giving the wine a richer mouthfeel, delicious tropical and stone fruit notes, and refreshing acidity on the finish." "Napoleon's wife, the Empress Josephine, visited Germany in the early 1800s and was very impressed with the Rieslings from the area. In turn, German Rieslings became quite fashionable among wine drinkers and were the top flight wines on restaurant lists. This wine is an homage to Empress Josephine's love of German Riesling." -Importer [+]
