Weingut Gindorf "Riesling Auslese" 2018

100% Riesling
A still white wine from the Mosel region of Germany.

Round and velvety. Rubber and under ripe mango.

Tasting Notes

The Riesling Auslese 2018 from Weingut Gindorf is pale yellow with greenish hues.

On the nose it’s big on rubber and fresh with citrus notes, green apple, freshly cut grass, under ripe mango.

The mouthfeel is round and velvety.

On the mouth a nice acidity counterbalance perfectly the sweetness of this Auslese.

Nice dessert wine at an incredible price point. It pairs beautifully with lemon meringue or a mango tart!

Wine-producing region

The Mosel River is the name of one of 13 German wine regions (Weinbaugebiete) that produce high-quality wines. Although the wine region is Germany’s third largest in terms of production, some consider it to be the most prestigious internationally. The Calmont vineyard on the Mosel, has the steepest recorded vineyard in the world at 65 degrees incline. The Mosel is best known for its Riesling wines, but grows other grapes such as Elbling and Müller-Thurgau. Because of the Mosel’s northerly location, Riesling wines are always light, with lower alcohol content, crisp acidity, and “flowery” aromas. Its most typical vineyard soil is extracted primarily from different types of slate deposits, which give the wines a transparent, mineralic appearance and often great depth of flavor.

White grape variety

Riesling is a white grape variety native to the Rhine Valley. Riesling is a flowery, almost perfumed grape variety with high acidity and flowery, almost perfumed aromas. It’s used to make white wines that are dry, semi-sweet, sweet, and sparkling. Riesling wines are almost never oaked and are normally varietally pure. Riesling was the world’s 20th most planted variety in 2004, with 48,700 hectares, but it is typically included in the “top three” white wine varieties, alongside Chardonnay and Sauvignon blanc, in terms of value for quality wines. Riesling is a terroir-expressive variety, which means that the character of Riesling wines is strongly influenced by the wine’s roots.
