Milz Laurentiushof, Trittenheimer Altärchen Spätlese Riesling Trocken 2002, Mosel, France
Tasting Note: The German wine classification system is filled with internal conflicts and this wine embodies the fact that German wine can be spätlese, dry, and maximally acceptable in the best way possible.
Gold in color, this wine has a nose of lemon-lime citrus, petrol and green pear.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied riesling is high in acidity with some chalk on the finish.
If you were served this wine blind you’d likely guess it was kabinett in style.
Price: $7 by the glass restaurant price.
