Ulrich Langguth Renaissance

Riesling

Mosel

11 Alcohol

Introduction

With the first records of Riesling planted in the Rheingau region dating back to 1435, Germany's wine production is most known for Riesling. Germany is one of the top 10 largest producers in the world. While over 60% of the production is white wine, the popularity of German Pinot Noir, or 'Spatburgunder', is growing! The centuries old tradition of coloured glass bottles is still practiced today with brown glass used for wine from Rheingau and green bottles indicating wine from Mosel. 'Weingut' on the label translates to 'estate', and is similar to a Spanish Bodega or French Chateau. Weingut Ulrich Languth is located in one of Germany's most prestigious regions, Mosel. Ulrich's sons tend to the estate in Traben-Tarbach, while vineyards are found nearest the villages of Enkirch, Traben, and Piesport. We were delighted to be introduced to this wine by a collective agent from Germany, representing the interests of several small producers in Mosel. This is the wine's first appearance in Alberta! Enjoy today or over the next 2-4 years at 10 degrees Celsius.


How it looks

Soft sunshine yellow. When tilted, the wine shows very little colour and is completely clear.

How it smells

Initial petrol aromas and bees wax show some of the age of the wine, with the stone fruit peaking through. We smell the fruit's skin, like picking a fresh peach.

How it tastes

The peaches, white plum, and green pears take centre stage followed by an understated clover honey. The mid palate shows a moderate acidity while the residual sugars of this off-dry wine linger on the finish. The steep hills of slate soil impart subtle minerality to the wine that shows while your glass warms.

Recommended food pairing

Spicy Indian dish of tikka chicken and rice. Tikka is a seasoning blend commonly containing coriander, cumin, garlic, paprika, ginger, chili, garam masala and dried mint.
