Juicy, delightful semi-dry-to-dry Riesling.
We were saddened to hear of the death of our friend, Gunderloch winemaker Fritz Hasselbach in 2016. He was a friend to our store, visiting several times in the past two decades. His son Johannes has taken over winemaking duties for this award-winning winery, and one of the estate's workhorse wines is the "Jean Baptiste," bottling, named after the estate founder. This vintage, the wine is made in an off-dry style, although it is dry to my taste. A beautifully floral aroma is followed by attractive fruit flavors in a delicate package. "It's a good ambassador for Gunderloch," says Johann.
