More about this wine
Schmitges wines are always good and worth exploring. I suppose that this might be considered the lowest quality of his wines in that it is a simple dry Riesling. Do not let mu silly supposition deter you from this wonderful liquid!
A beautiful Riesling nose with plenty of diesel, under-ripe apples and a clever hint of sweetness that only appears ethereally. Splendidly dry in the mouth and packed with flavour - apple, lime, sherbet. A long, satisfying, finish completes this well-balanced treat.
At this price, I have no idea why there is any left!
