Schloss Ortenberg 2013 Klingelberger (Riesling) Kabinett trocken (Baden)
The Ortenau makes so special a style of Riesling that they even give it its own name, Klingelberger, used nowhere else in Germany. Uniquely in Baden, a significant proportion of the vineyard area is dedicated to the Queen of Grapes. When you savour the suave, honied, yet vibrant style of this wine (just 11.5% alcohol and 7.2 gm. of acidity), you will understand why. Be among the first to champion this singular expression of Riesling with its long salty tail.

Notes from the Producer: The name "Klingelberger" is the only synonyme existing for the grape-variety "Riesling" and is only used in the south of the Ortenau in Baden. It describes the local expression of Riesling which is fruit-driven, elegant, mineral and not to strong in acidity.
