2013 August Kesseler Rüdesheim Rheingau Riesling

Tasting note

2013 August Kesseler Rüdesheim Riesling trocken

Following our recent trip to the Rheingau, I was obviously inspired to open a Rheingau Riesling for today’s dinner. Cheers!

Village wine from Rüdesheim from August Kesseler, aged for ten years. (The winery itself is located in Assmanshausen, one of Germany’s Spätburgunder/Pinot Noir strongholds).

Golden colour. A wonderful bouquet on the nose. Initially marked by a stony minerality, eventually joined by floral and fruity notes of peach and oxidised apple. In the mouth, a smooth acidity. This turns into tangerines or a juicy, sweet orange on the palate. Above this lies a slight spiciness that lingers even longer and, together with the sweetness (more than the acidity), carries the finish. All in all, an animating wine with great drinking flow!

Drink through 2024.
