Professional Wine Reviews for Dr. Hermann Riesling Auslese Herzlay Erdener Treppchen 2013

Rated 93 by Wine Advocate
The 2013 Erdener Treppchen Riesling Auslese is clear and aromatic on the nose and intertwines lychee, pineapples and yellow-fleshed fruit aromas with aromatic slate flavors in a delicate and pure way. This is proceeded on the palate where the piquant and salty taste of the blue-red slate gives the rhythm to the wine, whereas the delicate fruit-finesse sings the song, ”Stairway to Heaven.” Delicious and fascinatingly precise and stimulating, also thanks to a rather moderate residual sugar of 123.5 gram and the piquant acidity of 9.5 grams.

Winery Dr. Hermann

Country: Germany

Despite being known primarily for sweet and semi-sweet white wines, Germany actually produces a surprisingly large and varied range of wines, with many reaching an extremely high standard and being very well received on the world stage. The terrain across much of the southern parts of the country is extremely fertile, with mineral rich soils adding a wonderful edge to already excellent grapes, and thus resulting in delicious and highly elegant white and rosé wines. The climate in many parts of Germany also allows for some more unusual wine-making practices, with certain regions specializing in the highly aromatic and distinctive 'ice-wines' which are gaining popularity by those looking for something a little more intense and unusual. With these wines, the producers allow the grapes to freeze through the early frosts, resulting in a higher sugar content and a fantastic set of flavors and aromas in the finished product. Germany has long since favored quality over quantity, and a new enthusiasm for fine wine within the country is producing truly exciting results, using a blending of traditional and contemporary techniques.
