Winter Riesling Liter 2018
A dry, full-flavored Riesling with a superb long finish and tasty earthy fruitiness. Rheinhessen wines at their best show soil rather than, say, the minerality that Mosels show. Here you get lovely fruit, good texture and a clean, snappy earthiness that is remarkably dense and quite unique.
Stefan Winter is part of a group called Message in a Bottle, ambitious young wine makers determined to bring back the traditional quality of Rheinhessen wines. Winter and friends are out to prove that the once noble reputation of the Rheinhessen could return. Winter is one of the leading lights of this group. Producing mostly dry white wines, they tend to be fruity, spicy and full bodied. His liter bottling is the kind of wine that should be in the fridge all the time.
