2011 Züm Mosel Riesling
Wine & Spirits
"Extreme Value": Sweet peaches and firm acidity are balanced by just a touch of sweetness that will leave your palate satisfied and refreshed. Delicious and versatile, pair freely and with confidence!
Without a question one of the top buys here at K&L, Züm is a mouth-watering and food-friendly Riesling from Germany's famed Mosel river valley, made from grapes grown in steep slate hillside vineyard plots surrounding the ancient town of Bernkastel (overlooking the Landshut castle depicted on the label). It retains all of the Mosel mineral character and drive, but at a ridiculous $10 price! This is a nice juicy style, exhibiting racy notes of lime, apple, honey, and lively slate minerality, with vibrant acidity balanced by just a touch of sweetness that will leave your palate satisfied and refreshed. A perfect wine for any party and to have as an everyday white for the house, this pairs nicely with food but also works as a delightful cocktail wine. No reason to be shy, this one is way too good to pass up. Don't let this one 'Zum' past you -(Sorry, I had to do it)! -Eric Story, German wine buyer
