Additional Information on The Seeker Riesling

Winery: The Seeker

Varietal: Riesling

Although they originated in Germany's beautiful Rhine Valley, the Riesling grape soon spread around the world, where it thrives in many countries with a colder climate which can support this pale and unique grapes. Riesling grapes are considered one of the finest varietals on earth, capable of expressing fascinating features of the soil type they are grown on, resulting in some highly interesting wines with plenty to offer those who are looking for something different. Riesling grapes are also noted for their aromas, which tend to be highly perfumed, floral and often with smoky notes accentuating their unusual flavor Because this was always the predominant grape grown in Germany and other such countries, Riesling wineries have always been keen to experiment with its range. This has resulted in dry white wines, sparkling wines, semi sweet wines and several others, but the finest examples are usually considered to be the Riesling dessert wines. These are occasionally made with unusual processes, including the 'eiswine' method, in which the grapes are allowed to freeze in the early frosts, or by allowing the development of 'noble rot', which withers the grapes and results in some truly spectacular and unusual flavors.

Region: Mosel-Saar-Ruhr

In the heart of Germany's historic and beautiful Rhineland sits the wonderful wine region of Mosel-Saar-Ruhr, home to Germany's finest and most distinguished white wines. In Mosel-Saar-Ruhr, the vineyards which cover the incredibly steep valley-sides hold a wide range of white wine grape varietals, however, it is the Riesling grapes of this particular region which have given it such fame over the years. Supposedly originally planted by the Romans, while they stopped on their way to France, Mosel-Saar-Ruhr's vineyards are truly ancient, and are the providers of many of the country's most famous wines, some of which are capable of aging for impressively long periods. The Riesling wines of Mosel-Saar-Ruhr are somewhat more floral than those found elsewhere in Europe, and have a level of crispness and dryness which makes them stand head and shoulders above the Riesling wines elsewhere in the world.

Country: Germany

Much has changed over the past few decades in regards to German wine. Long gone are the days of mass produced, sickly sweet white wines which were once the chief exports of this fascinating and ancient wine producing country, and they have been replaced with something far more sophisticated. Whilst Germany continues to produce a relatively large amount of dessert wine, the wineries of the south of the country have reverted their attention to the production of drier, more elegant wines which really make the most of the fine grape varieties which flourish there. Many of the wineries dealing primarily with the excellent Riesling grapes have produced some truly exceptional dry and semi-sweet wines over the past few years, and it seems the world has finally woken up and noticed the extremely high quality of the distinctive produce coming out of Germany today.
