2011KRQuarzit2011 Weingut Kruger-Rumpf, Riesling “Quarzit” Trocken, Nahe, Germany.
Kruger-Rumpf’s lovely Quarzit Trocken is a vibrant and vivid Riesling with tangy acidity and crisp dryness, but still has lush flavors and bursts from the glass with steely mineral and energy driven force. The nose shows white flowers, crushed stones and tangerine leading to a bracing palate of lime, white peach and appleskin along with grapefruit, mango and briny saline essence. There is a lot to love in this zesty Riesling that has massive charm and flexibility making a great friend to many styles of cuisine and fun almost anytime. The Nahe region is one of the great terroirs of the world and Georg Rumpf’s wines showcase it to perfection and offer a great value as well, be sure to try them at the earliest chance, you will be greatly rewarded.
