Weingut Tesch Unplugged Riesling Kabinett Trocken Nahe 2010


Varietal: 100% Riesling

Viticulture & Vinification Notes: Using environmentally friendly techniques in the vineyard, the wine is not blended, concentrated nor chaptalised. It is fermentated dry in stainless steel tanks.

Jancis Robinson: Very very delicate aromatics - evanescence of flowers, spice and lemon, perhaps a hint of nuts. Amazing intensity for a Kabinett. Dry yet rich. Ripe minerally citrus on the palate, with that nutty edge, balanced by powerful freshness. This is dense yet elegant and very long.

The Wine Front (Gary Walsh): 93 Points. It smells and tastes of apples, petrol/mineral, limes and a bit of stonefruit too (but not botrytis). In the mouth bright, tight and particularly minerally and spice laden with great penetration and flavour and a good crisp dry finish. I can’t stop drinking it. This offers remarkable value for an import.

Aldo Sohm, Best Sommelier in the World 2008 and Chef Sommelier at Le Bernardin in the New York Post: For whites, I like the Riesling "Unplugged" Tesch Nahe/Germany because it shows a great complexity with clean fruit and spicy minerals.
