Riesling Alte Reben, QmP
This Alte Reben from Bastian is a Riesling but not as you know it. Alte Reben means old vines, generally over 30 years old, which adds a welcome complexity to the wine. This wine is full of juxtapositions, dry and robust with notes of lime and green apple . Higher acidity than in Silvaner and Pinot Blanc grapes merges with the intensity and complexity that come from the old vines. Great on its own and excellent with mussels.
Tasting notes: Off-dry, robust, with notes of lime and green apple
Provenance: Rheinhessen, Deutscher Prädikatswein (Spätlese)
