2013 Gunderloch Jean Baptiste Riesling Kabinett

"Always a pleasure and always great value for Riesling-lovers, the Jean-Baptiste is a blend of two great vineyards in 2012: the Pettenthal in Nierstein and Rothenberg in Nackenheim—both grand cru sites. Technically a feinherb style, or “balanced off-dry,” with passionfruit, peaches and pink lemonade flavors bursting through its juicy, electric palate, girded by thumping red slate. This is a wine we’ve used again and again to introduce consumers to the joys of German Riesling." -Importer [+]
