The Wine


Feinherb is a term for off-dry Riesling. It is not the semi-sweet of more traditional Riesling (called "Lieblich") or with the dryness of "Trocken", it is somewhere in between. You might wonder why they create this "in between" wine? Well, think of Goldilocks... "just right".

That little bit of sweetness makes it very flexible - it can handle Asian food, it smoothes out spicy food. It holds up to the honeyed sweetness of many barbecue sauces and yet the wine remains sharp enough to accompany a salad or seafood. Uncomplicated and versatile.

Tasted June 2016 and again in June 2017. Beautifully soft Riesling nose leading to a really impressive taste with pear drops and citrus fruits. The sweetness level lifts it above Trocken but not too far at all. It is a delightful wine and very easy to drink. At only 10.5% this is not so worrying but do be careful of the speed at which the bottle empties!

Wonderful Riesling

Riesling Feinherb

I had 6 Reisling Feinherb, 2011, and 6 Sophia Reisling Spatlese, 2011. Both were produced by Kollmann-Lex, based in the Mosel, Germany. Both wines are the best German wines that I have tasted for a long time. The Feinherb was superb, yet the Sophia was even better it was ethereal. it tasted like "liquid marmalade". Both had sweetness and acidity that was well balanced with a fine finish, and neither needed to accompany food, their delicacy and complexity of them would have been spoilt. I would certainly recommend these wines to other German wine lovers.
