Van Volxem Saar Riesling 2015

There are so many reasons to try this wine. There’s the history – the Saar's first vineyards were planted by the Romans, and Van Volxem wines in the late 1800s were some of the world’s best – there’s the soil, Devonian slate, and the aspect, due south, and the pitch, straight down (or so it seems) for great drainage. There’s the manual production, the natural yeast fermentation, the sustainable viticulture, the recreation of the dry, rich, and complex Saar Rieslings of a century ago. But really there’s only one reason: it’s delicious! Sourced from 30-year-old vines from some of their top vineyards, this is the prettiest, friendliest, easiest-to-like wine you will see in a long time. Fermented dry, it shows a complex, floral nose with dried apple, nectarine, pear, quince, and spices (just enumerating the aromas is a job – & this list is not exhaustive). The wonderful acidity, so necessary to bring out the nuances of fruit, makes the palate fresh and vigorous, while the mineral background throws into high relief the pear, white peach, nectarine and apple fruit. Medium-bodied, with terrific texture and a spicy, almost effervescent mouthfeel, it’s a tactile as well as gustatory pleasure, finishing dry.

Pairing: Enjoy it with great sushi or ceviche, white pizza, or spicy sausages.
