RICHTER MULHER 2012 ZEPPELIN QBA

This wine rocks! In the postmodern era, in our opinion, anything with a zeppelin on it should have a certain amount of, pardon my verbal crudité, "kickassness." This Riesling more than qualifies because it is '...the wine most often poured during the flights of the Zeppelin.' And it's very good wine; but first the history lesson: "The winegrowers of Mülheim on the Mosel were able to make this proud boast about their Riesling from the Mülheimer Sonnenlay vineyard during the ´twenties and ´thirties. From this, Mülheim gained its reputation as Zeppelinwein. Today wines from Mülheim are still marketed with the Art Deco Zeppelin label, a reminder of the days when the Zeppelin crossed the Atlantic and passengers relaxed in its luxurious restaurant sipping this delicious Riesling."

The nose is a beautiful meshing of orange marmalade, apricot preserves, peach syrup and just a touch of orange blossoms and sweet spice, muscat. The palate is unctuous and luxurious, fruit-filled and incredibly, viscously rich; but it has plenty of underlying acidity to keep it clean and not stuck to the roof of one's mouth. Flavors of white pêche, mixed stone fruits, a touch of river rock and light, sweet spice lead to a sweet, satisfying finish. Simply lovely wine. Seafood, shellfish and sushi come to mind with this; maybe spicier Thai dishes. You might ultimately seek more acidity with your fatty seafood wine, but the flavors mesh quite well.

Do you come from the land of the ice and snow? Got a spare hammer of the gods ready to drive your ship to new lands? This Riesling will help get you there in style.
