Richard Böcking 2019 Böcking Riesling, Mosel Valley

 Reach for Summer Refreshment With Riesling

Riesling is the most versatile white grape. It can be finished sweet or dry in a variety of styles and with different flavor profiles. The art of Riesling is perfected in Germany. A case in point is the Richard Böcking 2019 Böcking Riesling. This off-dry Riesling comes from the Middle Mosel Valley, where vines have been planted since Roman times.

The grapes come from the steep Trarbacher Taubenhaus estate vineyard. The grapes are finished in stainless steel to preserve the blooming, floral taste. It’s fresh and light. We found this Riesling interesting because it has distinct herbal and honeysuckle flavors with the light sweetness not interfering with the delicate nuances. This is a unique grape and a unique wine that we truly enjoyed.

Five thousand bottles were produced for the US.

Full disclosure: This wine was received as a marketing sample.
