Hubertus Clüsserath Riesling Spätlese

Fascinating, complex peach and apricot notes on the nose and on the palate, balanced by ripe citrus fruit and fabulous minerality.

The steep, south facing, slopes and fine grey slate soil of the estate’s Trittenheimer Altärchen vineyard, together with the use of what are today rare, old, low-yielding un-grafted Riesling grape vines, together with rigorous selective hand picking, guarantees a unique and extraordinarily wine of inimitable quality and profound complexity.

Dry Riesling is an ideal wine for vegetarian dishes with either light, or no, sauce, as well as seafood and chicken dishes. When looking for dry Riesling food pairings, look for simple fish, chicken, or pasta dishes that have some acidity to them, avoiding stronger sauces with a tomato base.
