Additional Information on Sorentberg Riesling Rotschiefer 2014

Winery: Sorentberg

Varietal: Riesling

Riesling grapes have been grown in and around central Europe for centuries, and over time, they became the lasting symbol of south Germany's ancient and proud wine culture. Whilst the reputation of German wines abroad has in the past been mixed, the Germans themselves take an enormous amount of pride in their wineries, and Riesling grapes have now spread around the globe, growing anywhere with the correct climate in which they can thrive. Riesling grape varietals generally require much cooler climatic conditions than many other white grapes, and they are generally considered to be a very 'terroir expressive' varietal, meaning that the features and characteristics of the terroir they are grown on comes across in the flavors and aromas in the bottle. It is this important feature which has allowed Riesling wines to be elevated into the category of 'fine' white wines, as the features of the top quality bottles are generally considered to be highly unique and offer much to interest wine enthusiasts.

Region: Mosel-Saar-Ruhr

The region of Mosel-Saar-Ruhr in Germany's beautiful Rhineland is perhaps the country's most important and famous wine region. Covering the steep Mosel, Saar and Ruhr valley-sides, the region is the one most commonly associated with the best of Germany's Riesling wines, long considered to the be flagship grape varietal of the country, and much loved for its floral nature, dry crispness, and ability to express the finest points of its terroir. Mosel-Saar-Ruhr has been used for cultivating vines since the Roman times, when many of the original vineyards were established on what are today the steepest hill sides used for viticulture in the world. The Romans fell in love with the lighter bodied, lower alcohol Riesling wines, and ever since then, the region of Mosel-Saar-Ruhr has produced the very finest examples of German wine made with this special and unique grape.

Country: Germany

If German wine has had something of a bad reputation in the past, it may well be the fault of the fact that for a long time now, the Germans have simply kept all the best produce to themselves. Visit any town or village in wine producing regions of Germany, and you'll be faced with a stunning array of extremely high quality wines, each matched with local dishes and full of distinct character and flavor. As white wine production makes up for about two-thirds of all Germany's wine industry, this is by far the most visible and widely enjoyed type of wine, but one should not overlook the quality and range of rosé and red wines on offer from this fascinating country. In particular, the Spatburgunder wines (the German name for Pinot Noir) are generally of an exceptionally high quality, being full of dark, intense hedgerow fruit flavors and exciting spicy notes with a silky smooth finish.
