Riesling Rocks: BERGMANN Rüdesheimer Rosengarten Kabinett 2013

Here’s an everyday-priced, easy-to-drink, easy-to-like (mostly) Riesling from Germany’s very hot (as in increasingly sought after) Nahe region where the diverse terroirs include slate, gravel, sandstone, quartz, porphyry, and melaphyre and the wines split the difference between the Rheingau and the Mosel.

A blend of mostly Riesling with some Scheurebe and Muller-Thurgau cold fermented in stainless steel.     Straw with green highlights and good legs; semi-sweet, medium-light-bodied with refreshing acidity.  Ripe apple juice fruit with hints of peach and lime. Soft focus but has a bit of mineral. Try it as a refreshing summer aperitif or with spicy seafood dishes. BearScore: 89.
