The Wine

Details

Steininger is well-known for his superb sparkling wine and for very good reasons (Just ask those who managed to get their hands on some of the 2005 vintages that we sold before Christmas 201 and we tasted the 2015 vintages at ProWein in Dusseldorf in 2017 - fresher, of course, but still magnificent.

Making fizz is a very important part of Steingers philosophy but it is not all that goes on there. Among the wonderful bubbles there are some still wines and this Riesling 2011 is a great example of them.

It is a light yellow-green, very clear and bright, with a beautiful Riesling nose of green apples and petrol. The acidity is perfect and your mouth starts watering the moment this wine hits your tongue. The apple continues on the palate and is joined with stone fruits also, particularly greengages and apricots. It has a pure, clean, finish with the flavours lingering.

This is a great summer wine. Splendid on its own but a good accompaniment to salads, fish and seafood.

Ben says (August 2018): Wonderfully consistent, this wine shows just how well Riesling ages. The wine still seems as fresh as it was in 2012 and is yet to show any significant signs of serious maturity. Absolutely lovely!
