Naegele Riesling QbA Halbtrocken 2016 2016

German Riesling is the darling of wine professionals and sommeliers around the world. It’s available in a serious variety of delicious styles, with the dry and lightly sweet versions being some of the best food-pairing wines around – one reason why you’ll spot them on top restaurant wine lists from New York to Tokyo. The finest bottles (of any sweetness level) age brilliantly too.

This exclusive comes from the cellars of the Naegele Estate, which has been owned by the same family for over two centuries. The premium grapes were given a gentle pressing, with a slow fermentation in stainless steel to preserve Riesling’s trademark zippy fruit flavors and bright acidity. And a bonus for spicy food lovers: Naegele Fass No. 98 is made in the Halbtrocken style – literally, ‘half dry’ – so it’s an off-dry wine that will cut deliciously through the heat of powerful spices and help really elevate your meal. Along with that sweetness, you’ll also get a lively streak of acidity with a crisp, refreshing texture and waves of lime, green apple and yellow plum.
