Blauer Wildbacher - Riesling

You're exploring Blauer Wildbacher

Blauer Wildbacher is a red grape normally used only in the famous Schilcher Rosé.  It is dark and quite tannic, and yet produces beautiful fresh and intense rosé.

Reds are made but only in good years as the grape has a rather high acidity content. Really worth snatching up when you see it.

Riesling wines can be highly aromatic with apple, peach and pear at the forefront, mixed with delicate floral undertones and often honey and spice on the nose. On the palate, Rieslings echo the apple, pear and peach along with citrus and tropical nuances. Rieslings tend to pick up a noticeable "minerality" from their native soils.

Riesling, through DNA data, appears to be a cross between Gouais Blanc and an unknown relative of Savagnin. Riesling seems to have originated on the north bank of the Rhine in Germany where we find its first mention in a document dated 1435.

Up to the early 20th century Riesling and Sylvaner were often confused with each other. If you buy an ancient bottle you can't be sure which it might be. After the 60s, you're OK.
