Geil, Rieslaner BA (375ml), 2018

Dessert Wine from Rheinhessen, Germany
by Geil
$29.99 $34.99

Johannes Geil farms 30 hectares of Riesling and many forgotten varieties, including this one, Rieslaner, a very high acid, textural cross of Riesling and Silvaner, in the village of Bechtheim in Rheinhessen. His ancestors were some of the very first to cultivate and bottle wine here and plantings in Bechtheim were recognized as superior in the tax maps of 1780. Yields are lower than the regional average and with a continuous effort of fine tuning every aspect of the operation, every vintage.

"Delicate, grapefruity and herbal; it’s discreet from recent bottling, true to the variety but not blatant. This and the Muscat are simply two good tasting wines. This one’s angular yet creamy with the agreeable ending sourness of the grape." - Terry Theise

German Wines

Is there a better grape than Riesling? Is there a better value? Its fruit purity, its perfume, and its mineral nuance are all unparalleled. And for centuries, the top German Rieslings were priced accordingly: at least as expensive as the top red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy. But nowadays you could spend a lifetime exploring Germany’s great Riesling-producing regions while staying well within your budget. You might take an occasional break to try Germany’s other white grapes or perhaps a glass of Spätburgunder (the local name for Pinot Noir). It’s time to get started!
