Meulenhof Riesling Auslese 'Erdener Treppchen' (24403)

Wine Consultant, Roger Clark: "OH Wow! Lovely Peach- apple aromas- enough "sweetness" to give flavor to the mid-palate and enough acidity to give the finish grip. Not only good with ham and all the goodies, but stellar with spicier chicken or pork dishes. Should age 20-30 years, but drinking it all right away... that would work too."

Famed German Importer, Terry Theise describes this wine as "grandiose" - "A thoroughly complete ripe Treppchen fragrance, peach and cox orange pippins; the palate is all that plus sea-salt and sassafras; overtly expressive and generous with a ripe meringue of slate; an extroverted and unfussy Mosel beauty."

Wine Spectator reviewed this wine on the Insider: "Shows the cool slate, pear, apple and savory aromas and flavors typical of 2008, backed by vivid acidity. This is complex, with all the elements present. 92 points.

Mosel-Saar-Ruwer
(MOH zel zar ROO ver)—This dramatically beautiful region of western Germany produces exceptional white wines from the Riesling grape. Among the lightest in Germany, these wines usually contain less than 10% alcohol and they are generally delicate, fresh, and bursting with flavor. With its flowery tastes and aromas, Mosel Riesling is a great wine to drink in the spring. Look for the words “Erzeugerabfüllung” or Gutsabfüllung,” which indicate that the wine was estate bottled and not mass-produced.
Riesling
(REESE ling)—a grape that comes mostly from the Mosel and Rheingau regions of Germany (where it is a noble variety), the Finger Lakes region of New York, and Alsace region of France, and Austria. Although often thought of as “sweet,” many Rieslings are quite dry. The word trocken on German bottles indicates dryness. The trademarks of Riesling are high acidity, low to medium alcohol levels, and aromas and flavors that range from fruity and flowery to mineral. Also called Johannesburg Riesling or White Riesling.
