Tasting Notes:

The golden 2012 Erdener Herrenberg Riesling Eiswein Gold Capsule has a highly concentrated and spicy bouquet of super-ripe apricots, spices and tobacco flavors. Very sweet, but elegant and fresh on the oily-textured palate, this excellent sweet wine finishes with a refreshing acidity and should be good food partner in 10-20 years.

The Riesling-Estate »Dr. Hermann« with more than 9 hectares of vineyards is managed by Rudi Hermann and his son Christian. Winegrowing has been a tradition in the Hermann family for several hundred years. The present estate was created in 1967 when the renowned estate Joh. Jos. Christoffel Erben in Ürzig was divided for inheritance reasons. Christian's grandfather, the medical Dr. Hermann, founded his own wine estate with his share of the vineyards.

A noble wine produced from very ripe grapes, that have been harvested at a temperature lower than -7° centigrade and pressed while still frozen. The wine is produced from the highly concentrated essence of the grape. The water contained in the grape juice remains in the press as ice crystals. (must sugar 130° - 180°)

Food pairing

Great with foie gras or blue cheeses such as Stilton, Roquefort, Bleu d´Auvergne or Gorgonzola.
