The 2016 vintage was one of the best in Rhengau since 2011, and it shows in this estate wine from Spreitzer. This Riesling is medium dry and very focused, with tropical fruits (pineapple), dried apples, peaches, custard, lemon peel and lemon curd. There is a honeyed sweet note but well balanced with sparkling acidity and slatey minerality to a clean, dry finish. Pair this with grilled chicken, Asian cuisine, pork dishes and river fishes.

Brothers Andreas and Bernd Spreitzer are well respected in the famous wine region of Rheingau in Germany. Their wines accommodate any occasion, but at the same time make you think about them due to their complexity. They are elegant with the powerful fruit one expects from the Rheingau, plus they often exceed the vibrancy and mineral complexity of wines made by older estates.

Their winemaking operations are solar-powered, with their tasting room heated by a geothermal transfer system. Sustainable practices are the rule in their vineyards.
