Seebrich Niersteiner Olberg Riesling Eiswein '04, Rheinhessen, Germany

Seebrich Riesling Eiswein

Luscious German wine made from Riesling from the Rheinhessen region.

Technical Data: 100% Riesling, aged 6 months in stainless steel tanks. Appellation Niersteiner Olberg.

Description: Bright golden color. Strongly aromatic with notes of peaches and spices. On the palate, it distinguishes itself by its apricot canned flavors combined with spices followed closely by nutsy undertones. Full-bodied wine with a good acidity and depth, really well balanced. Long lasting finish with some bitterness recalling grapefruit zest.

Food Pairing & Service: Ideally suited to "foie gras" and other very rich food, also a good companion to chocolate mousse and truffle as well as fresh berries. Could also be enjoyed by itself.

Score: 9/10

Suggested Retail Price: $34.99

Strongly recommended for the coming Holiday's Season
