More about this wine
For generations the Zimmermann family have made excellent high quality wine manually at their winery located on the Moselle in Berkastel-Kues.
Excellent both as an apéritif or with fish dishes (trout meuniere for example) or pork chops.
Ben says (February 2017): What a delicious and perfect example of really good dry Mosel riesling. This is a beautifully clear and crisp wine with as much diesel and green apple on the nose as if it were bottled yesterday. Themouthfeel is lovely with the acidity cutting through the fruit flavours to give the impression of a sweetness that is not there at all! The finish is long and fruity. Gorgeous.
A pale golden yellow, this wine has a fresh fruity nose with some citrus notes. On the palate there are stone fruit (white peach) and citrus flavours with green apples and orchard fruit coming through on the finish.
