N° 16 - Saar Riesling (Reginal)
The Riesling Trocken N° 16 was made for half from own grapes harvested in Ayl and for half from purchased grapes from Saarburg, Wawern, and Wiltingen. It offers a delicately backward nose made of herbal elements, elderflower, mirabelle, cardamom, red berried fruits, and smoke. The wine develops quite some presence on the palate, and leaves a gorgeously zesty and spicy feel in the long finish. This dry wine proves remarkably intense and is therefore meant to accompany food rather than for slurping on its own.
