2004 Bert Simon Serrig Wurzberg Riesling Spatlese_lowres


Mosel-Saar-Ruwer, Germany/ $15-$20 Retail

Riesling wines are at their best when produced from vineyards on the grape's native German soil. This bottling is an off-dry, full-bodied wine exuding complex, concentrated aromas of tropical fruit with honey, floral notes and a luscious minerality. In the mouth, clean peach, apricot and stone fruit flavors mingle with sweet citrus notes balanced by a racy acidity. The wine will cellar for an indefinite period, changing character, color and aroma as it ages. Drink it with spicy sausages, seafood, soft cheeses, duck or pork with fruit sauces, Thai and Cajun cuisine. Buy it at: Rouses on Tchoupitoulas Street and W.I.N.O. Drink it at: La Petite Grocery, Herbsaint, Delmonico, W.I.N.O., Emeril's and NOLA. — Brenda Maitland
