Profile

Dr. Robert Weil, a well-respected member of a historic ruling family in Germany bought and started the winery back in 1867. This Trocken Riesling was regularly featured on wine lists in the high class hotels of the 1920s such as the Metropolitan and the Berlin Adlon, hotels that would be of the same class as a Ritz Carlton in today's society. With four generations of family winemakers, Dr. Robert Weil is still a family-owned operation and one of the pioneers in helping Germany's Rieslings make it onto the world stage. With some of the top vineyard sites in the Rheingau, Dr. Robert Weil Riesling has gained significance as both a vineyard heritage site and gained its VDP Grand Cru Classification in 2012. Today, the Trocken Riesling once reserved only for the wealthy is now available in Canada only through Wine Collective as one of our exclusive members only selections. The best part is these wines can age up to twenty years! Drink now or in 20 years from now at 7 ºCWhenever you choose to enjoy it, serve at a well-chilled 7 C.

Smell

Bright and fresh like walking down the road after a fresh summer rainfall or standing at the edge of a waterfall. Crisp green apple and citrus aromas fill the nose and make you want to take a sip.

Taste

This is a beautiful dry style Riesling that really showcases the style of the grape well. It has a steely minerality that leads into fresh green apple, lime and verbena notes. Vibrant and lively stone fruit aromas of peach, nectarine and apricot. Very true to the high quality Rieslings we have come to love from Germany.

Pairing

Pairs great with seafood dishes like prawn laksa, crab legs, oven-roasted trout with lemon dill sauce, bratwurst, Brussels sprouts in maple mustard glaze & spargel (white asparagus).
