Well this is worth a full repost. 📸: @fiveandahalftwists #drinkriesling ・・・ Say hi to what is probably my MOST favorite grape variety of all time. I just got back from #riesling country in Germany and had the privilege to visit wineries in #mosel and #rheingau ❤ Wine made from Riesling, when made really well, is one of the few white wines that can age (some last longer than a lot of relationships, I know, haha!). There is a misconception, especially in my part of the world that ALL Riesling are sweet. Not true. This grape is so versatile it can be made dry, off dry, sweet and even sparkling. Warning: Riesling is known for it's SEARING acidity. It makes your mouth pucker. But it is this same acidity that makes the wine stand out. For Filipinos, I guess you can say this is one wine na talagang "may asim pa" no matter how old it gets. Find a good Riesling and you've (sort of) found forever. It's excellent with a lot of Asian dishes, too. #whitewine#wineeducation#winerd#winefacts#infographic#cheers

Clos Sainte Hune is a 1,67 hectares exceptional stony argilo-calcaire, or Muschelkalk, limestone terroir, exclusively planted in Riesling, located in the heart of Grand Cru Rosacker, in Hunawihr. It is considered as one's of the World's Greatest White Wines. The calcary soil allows this Riesling to develop a specific aroma and a wonderful concentration of fruits. Dry yet succulent, of phenomenal complexity, this wine develops an extraordinary aftertaste of minerals after a few years in bottle. The plot, which is approximately 50 to 70 years old, is south south east exposed and the yields are low. Annual production reaches about 9000 bottles, depending on the vintage. That makes the wine so unique that Clos Sainte Hune is looked for by many collectors all over the world.
@closduval | 2016 | Cabernet Franc | Hirondelle Vineyard | It’s such a delight to see Cabernet Franc becoming more of a common single bottling in Napa now, and not to mention coming from an amazing winery that is rich of history and quality. Notes of blueberries, blackberries, toasted oak, chocolate, savory herbs, mint and forest floor. Smooth on the palate, the fruit is expressive and youthful, and is supported by nice acidity that keeps the palate energetic. Smooth mid-palate, well integrated tannins, this Cab Franc opens up beautifully with just an hour in a decanter. Enjoy over the next 10+ years | 94 points | $100 |
