93

The most immediately appealing of Martin Tesch's 2016 single vineyard dry rieslings this smells and tastes like a great fruit salad, but without any hint of sweetness. Then the powerful chalky finish comes through and shows you who’s boss. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

90 Stephan Reinhardt - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

From pure loess-loam, calcareous soils in Langenlonsheim, the 2016 Nahe Riesling Königsschild Trocken opens with a clear, intense, fresh, aromatic and yeasty nose with aromas of citrus fruits (oranges) and green apples. Lean yet round, fresh and very elegant on the palate, this is a stunningly pure, mineral, tightly woven, finessed and transparent Riesling with a stimulatingly salty, piquant finish.

Product Description:

Dark straw color with peach and apricot notes on the nose. Dry, acidic, and citrus-driven on the palate. Strawberry notes on the finish. Pairs well with pork, poultry, shellfish, poultry, and spicy dishes.
