We have enjoyed a relaxing holiday in Sicily last two weeks visiting both the Cefalu regionen and Castellammare del Golfo. It was amazing, but more on that here on winblogg in August.
After all the fantastic food and vulcano wine consumed during the trip we needed to neutralize our taste buds for the Nordic cuisine. And a grape that makes is best is in my opinion the Riesling grape, especially when it has grown slightly south of Frankfurt in Germany. Is there anything better than a warm summer where wonderful minerals meets citrus and with a perfect acidity. Is there any wine lover that does not get going with that combo? Earlier in the spring, we tested Von Buhl Riesling with great pleasure. And now it is time to turn to organic producer Sander from Reinhessen.
Sander eco Riesling from 2015 for the wine bargain price of 11 euro (in Sweden)
The scent is wonderful, full of minerals (like smelling the dirt) together with a lovely freshly squeezed citrus and a delicate touch of honey. A true benchmark Riesling smell in my opinion.
The taste is perfect for summer grilled seafood dishes. Here you will find a perfect acid similar to the sounds of the opera Elektra by Richard Strauss. Combine that with a beautiful minerals, fresh fruity, citrus, fresh herbs and a final hint of honey. So good for just the price close to 10 euros, makes it into an obvious wine bargain made for summer.
