Frank John Riesling 2016 (Pfalz, Germany)

Palattinate wine region (Pfalz for friends) is the second strongest wine region in Germany. Geographically it is the natural continuation of the Rhine River's vineyards that offers unic wines in Alsace and in Rhineland. Its valleys and forests are the key for the Riesling resist the cold temperatures that elsewhere in Germany would make viticulture impossible. Mr. John knows it and he takes it with the help of Steiner's teachings.

Visually a straw yellow with golden highlights, a little cloudy too (smooth filtration). Delicate nose, with mature orange skin, mountain grass and floral hints to moved glass. More complex than intense. In mouth a dry entry. A silky, friendly development with a slight effervescence. Mouth aromes of ripe citrus, orange, clementine and ' Bunts-andstein's ' herbals without forgetting the white fruit of bone. A spicy and sage finish with a good intensity.

In the Frank John's 3 Ha there is not only Riesling, but also Pinot Noir. A totally family and artisan spirit that this winemaker transmits his wines. Its price of 18 euros is very accessible given there is work in biodynamic viticulture that is already a hallmark of the great German wines. Another added value is the fermentation and aging on indigenous lees for one year in 1'2 and 2'4 Hl 'foudres'. To enjoy here for 5 years with a Dover Sole Meunière, mussels, cockles and langoustines.
