Burg Ravensburg 2022 Riesling Sulzfeld trocken - ORGANIC
Burg Ravensburg’s elevated reputation is built on the twin pillars of Riesling and Pinot Noir, to which the predominant “Keuper” (gypsum-limestone) soils are exceptionally well suited. We blinked before ordering the difficult but excellent 2021 vintage wine, and missed it. (But see Heitlinger above, where we were in time!) Fortunately, 2022, a much easier year for Claus and his team to manage, is no slouch at all, and this snappy beauty with its keenly etched form and succulence delivers a heap of gorgeous Riesling fruit in its slender 11.5% frame. Indeed, it evokes a great Nahe wine in its mysterious, swirling aromas and depth of flavor.

Notes from the Producer: the grapes are gently harvested by hand, carefully sorted, and after ca. 24 hours of skin contact, slowly pressed. On the nose: ripe, clear fragrance of citrus and exotic fruit, vineyard peach, and mirabelle plum. On the palate: a fine play of fruit, mineral notes, and fresh acidity.
Serving suggestions: summer salads, appetizers, light fish or poultry dishes, and veal.
