Nikolaihof Jungfrelese Steiner Hund Riesling 2005
Riesling may be the greatest white wine in the world though you’ll only come to share my sentiment when you’ve tasted a few well-aged examples; certain of these wines, though by no means a rarity, can age beautifully for decades. The wines are usually made dry or off-dry. The bouquet often includes honeysuckle, white flowers, wet stones, rose petals and, don’t frown, petrol. In the mouth the oft and aptly used ‘racy’ best describes the delights of Riesling; flint, minerality, white pepper. These are among the best food wines in the world.
Pork, ham, scallops. Salmon or tuna most anyway even tartare. Asian food. An excellent wine with food.
