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!
"Aromas of tropical fruits such as pineapple and melon. There are just hints of green apple and citrus balanced by perfect sweetness and crisp acidity making this a very versatile wine. It can be served as an aperitif or enjoyed with many styles of food. It’s rare to find a Riesling of this quality at such an affordable price." The Wine Buyer, 92 Points
