Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2011 Felseneck Riesling Grosses Gewachs is pure beauty on both the nose and palate. The stunningly refined nose delivers a complex melange of tart orange, pink grapefruit, wild yeasts, crystalline slate minerality, citrus peel, a touch of lemongrass and again, a smoky top note. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and dancing, with a superb core of fruit, bright, zesty acidity, flawless balance and profound length and grip on the laser-like and boundless finish. This is just a humbling bottle of dry Riesling from a magical terroir! John Gilman

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.
