What makes a good Riesling great? For some it's a combination of vibrant acidity, good weight on the palate, a balance of fruit and sweetness, and a mouth watering finish. Generally, we're happy with two or three out of four, but The Wine Buyer was thrilled to find the Bluker Spatlese, made by Weingut Louis Guntrum in the Rheinhessen, which hits on every note.

Fans of Mel Brooks might recognize the label as a Young Frankenstein tribute to Frau Bluker who always scared the stable horses anytime the name "Bluker" was uttered. Playful, light, yet full of life this Riesling will be your next go to white wine when pairing with Sushi, Thai foods or anything with a little kick!

"The best word to describe this wine is elegant. Itopens with aromas of tropical fruit that introduces you to a pallet filled with flavors of pineapple, melon, citrus and just a hint of green apple. Excellent balance of sweetness and acidity make this a very versatile wine. It can be served as an aperitif or enjoyed with many styles of food. Itís rare to find a Riesling of this quality at such an affordable price." The Wine Buyer, 92 Points

Wine maker notes
Spatlese is one of the most popular expressions of German Rieslings because of it's combination of sweetness and acidity. The word spatlese simply refers to the degree of ripeness at which the grapes are harvested, and then fermented into wine. On Riesling labels, you'll find this system of ripeness classification, starting with grapes that contain the least amount of sugar, kabinett wines, then spatlese, and then the riper auslese.
