2013 Schweinhardt Riesling Trocken Konigschlid
$ 17.99

Axel Schweinhardt is to dry Riesling in the Nahe what Donhoff is to sweet... which is to say the guy knows what he's doing. Harvested at a Spatlese level and vinified dry (or just about dry), Konigsschild explodes from the glass with intense aromas and flavors of wild flowers, avocado, apple, with distinct minerality balance and finesse. An almost frizzante sensation on the palate is a product of the dissolved CO2 Axel uses for added preservation and to highlight the fresh, lively character of his taut, high-energy Riesling.
