The Advanced Rheingau Riesling Pairing will show you two high quality wines from Germany's famous Rheingau region, known for powerful and highly aromatic wines.
This Pairing introduces you to two different styles of Riesling the Rheingau produces. First is a traditional Spätlese-level wine from the historic Hattenheimer Hassel vineyard (which is sweeter in style) and second a “Charta” Association wine (which is completely dry).
This Pairing includes the following wines:
Wine 1: Charta Association Riesling trocken (dry) exhibits tart fruits of lime zest, fresh candied Meyer lemon and under-ripe white peach, with fragrant white flowers, apple blossoms, jasmine tea, flint, river stones and beeswax notes.
Wine 2: Hattenheimer Hassel Riesling Spätlese (sweet) will have ripe fruit flavors of sweet peaches & nectarines, fresh lemonade, and juicy Fuji apples, along with layers of honeysuckle, candied ginger, saffron and wet stones.
