Wine Critic Reviews:

Originating with tiny, partially botrytized berries in the so-called Aspen site within the Burgergarten, Muller-Catoir's 2008 Haardter Burgergarten Riesling Spatlese leads with pungent ginger spice, grapefruit zest, and smoky black tea, as well, as musk melon and red berry preserves, all of which inform an expansive palate of honeyed richness and subtle creaminess yet offering a luscious brand of refreshment and striking sense of buoyancy. Salted caramel and vanilla mingle with the juicy, generous finishing fruit and spice, creating a kaleidoscopically dynamic interaction. This impeccably-balanced and irresistible Riesling should be worth following for at least the next 20 years. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Country Germany: While the combined surface of Germany's vineyards equals out to one-tenth of Spain's, it is listed as the world's eighth-largest wine producer in the world. Most German wines revolve around either Riesling or Pinot Noir, and as is often the case in similar scenarios, these grape varietals are brought to their fullest potential. Riesling fans rejoice, as the quality of German whites is nothing short of heavenly. Whether you prefer a dryer or sweeter white, you can find an oasis or two among Germany's reputable producers. There's no better way to spend your summer than with a classic German wine or two.

Type of Wine German White: German Riesling, grown along the Rhine, is one of the most famous white grape varieties worldwide. Winemakers rarely blend this highly acidic varietal with other grapes. A bit behind Riesling, Muller-Thurgau is another popular varietal in Germany, obtained from a crossing of Riesling and Silvaner. Silvaner is the third-most cultivated white varietal in Germany.
Varietal Riesling: Riesling is a German grape varietal used to produce some of the most heavenly white wine that has ever existed. This has to be tasted to be believed, trust us. If you enjoy your white wine on the sweeter side (as many people do), Riesling wines are an essential addition to your wine cellar. Even if you normally prefer dry, non-sweet wines, you might just get converted by this piece of work.
