Rheingau, on the valley sides of the beautiful Rhine river in Germany, has long since been home to many of the country's finest white wines. With a relatively small area of three thousand hectares under vine, Rheingau has always been a region more concerned with quality than quantity, and the wineries of the Rheingau region feature master wine makers with generations of experience and expertise in getting the very best flavors from their grapes. The grapes in question are almost always of the Riesling varietal, and ancient grape renowned for its dry and crisp character, and its ability to express the finest features of the terroir it grows on. In Rheingau, the terroir is nothing less than superb, featuring clear, crystal mountain waters, mineral rich soils and a mild, cool climate in which Riesling grapes flourish and thrive, producing wines of real distinction and beautiful flavours.
My first order from WC. Ordered German Mosel/Zell wine, Zeller Schwartz Katz. The price was comparable to that previously found at Base Exchange. Very happy with the wine and the service, etc.
This Riesling is delightfully dry, with crisp green apple and fresh rapefruit flavors. Enjoy chilled anytime or with broiled seafood with lemon
