Hans Lang produces wines in the Hattenheim on the Rheingau – this modestly priced riesling that plays well with food and is one you should seek out if you’re relatively new to German riesling.
Nose: Apple-flavored chalk dust with nice notes of minerality, green apples, lemon drop and pear.
Taste: This is a totally stellar rielsing that has insanely good notes of river rock, chalk, green apple and lemons. It’s bright, fruity and acidic at the same time – it begs for food, doesn’t overpower the palate and leaves a sense of refeshed taste buds with each sip – a total no-brainer for most holiday or festive meals.
