Why does Germany “own” Riesling? Well outside of having a sublime climate for this amazing grape, it also has wineries like Wittman that have been around far longer than we’ve been a country. Established in 1663, Wittman is a family-owned and family-run winery which has been producing biodynamic wines since 1990 and continues to garner international acclaim.
Nose: Lemon-zested dust, river rock, kiwi, chalk, petrol and pear.
Taste: Beautiful acidity combines with a good amount of citrus and tropical fruits. Super clean mid palate that leads into a lingering finish. Definitely a solid bottle, however, there are other Rieslings out there that offer a similar experience at less money.
