2011 'Fritz's' Riesling by Gunderloch - Rheinhessen, Germany
Made by Fritz Hasselbach of Weingut Gunderloch fame, this wine represents an affordable riesling from the renowned producer.
The grapes are grown on the slopes of the Roter Hang which translates, rather literally to 'red slope'. Informed by the red soils of the region, the wine is clean and focused. Zingy flavours of lemon and lime are fresh and approachable with a slight chalky flintiness. The strength of the wine is it's acidity — fine and well-integrated. Chill the wine to 10º celsius and serve with light dishes such as barbecued squid with tabbouleh on the side.
