Schloss Vollrads Estate, Rheingau Riesling Kabinett 2011

Schloss Vollrads Estate, Rheingau Riesling Kabinett 2011This wine comes recommended by Rebecca Murphy, who picked it as her “wine of the week” in the Dallas Morning News. She wrote: “From the 800-year-old German wine estate of Schloss Vollrads we have an ethereal wine that whispers of crushed flowers sprinkled on white peaches and green apples. The floral, fruity aromas with flinty mineral notes are followed by sweet, white peach flavours balanced with decisive acidity. The lovely tension of sweetness and acidity makes the wine soft and easy on the palate, with a zesty finish that makes you wonder if you just imagined the sweetness.”

Murphy added: “All these flavours and only 9% alcohol: This is the perfect combination for a spicy-hot dish like a Thai curry that has some sweetness from coconut milk.”
