2015 DR. CRUSIUS “TRAISER ROTENFELS” KABINETT RIESLING
A graceful portrayal of Kabinett Riesling and one of the best that I’ve tasted all year. Intricate and persistent flavors caress your palate as delicate layers of white peach, honeyed pear, lemon curd and a hint of chamomile unwind with stunning finesse. Declared one of the top 60 wineries in Germany by Gault Millau, Dr. Crusius spent centuries perfecting their winemaking. Our panel was so enthralled by the quality of this Riesling, that we’re pouring it by-the-glass in our Yountville store.
Arising from the frighteningly steep Traiser Rotenfels vineyard, positioned at around 650 feet above sea level, it’s the highest steep face north of the Alps… The soils are laden with volcanic material, infusing a thread of mineral elements in the wine. Absolutely exquisite flavors are precise and light-footed, lively and flirtatious, entertaining your senses all the way through the lengthy finish. If you haven’t experienced a Riesling from this remarkable region, this is the perfect opportunity to expand your horizons and try this world-class white.
