Wenn Mama ihr Geburtstagsgeschenk einlöst, gibt es schon Wein zum Frühstück 🙈
Im #weinreich in Sommerach haben wir heute die Schulbank gedrückt und sind dann bei strahlenden Sonnenschein durch den Weinberg gewandert ☀️🥂
Dear Wine Lovers,
after a while, it`s time again for some wine. As a special edition, the vintners of the German winery `Sommerach` bottled a Rieslaner Auslese in a specially shaped Bocksbeutel.
Auslese, as you may remember states a very high German quality level for predicate wines. And the bottle represents the history of Franconian and Southern German wine-bottles with its volumnous form. Katzenkopf, the German word for a cats` head is followingly the name of this special edition.
But what is the most important on this bottle is the liquid inside. The Rieslaner has been mistaken a lot of times for the bigger brother, the Riesling. The name might sound similar, but the wine is not. Though it has been developed out of a crossing between Riesling and SIlvaner, it only inherited the best attributes from both of its "parents". If the wine is from a higher quality, you will be able to taste and smell citrus fruits, like lemons or oranges, but also maracuja, peaches or mangos can be felt. But the last three components are only noticeable, when the wine has the second-highest quality level existing in Germany... or higher. And just for your own interest, the wine pictured is part of this group... Legends say, that even apples or floral aromas may be part of the taste, but there is only one way to be sure abut that, try yourself!
It can be paired with fish, noodles or other lighter foods to increase the experience.
So, without a doubt, you should try this child of the two biggest and most desired German wine grapes yourself.
Have a nice peak of the week!
