Ludes 'Hermann', Riesling, Mosel, Germany 2020
The village Thörnich is located in an upper-section of the Mosel, far away from the more famous stretch of the Mosel, where the more recognizable wines makers are located. In this easily forgotten place, you'll find truly old-school Mosel Rieslings, more rustic, transparent, and bracing. This wine is fermented to just off-dry (in 2020 it has about 14 grams residual sugar per liter) and flaunts a precocious balance, a magical, just barely perceptible off-dry-ness.
Pairing: Spicy Thai
Soil: Slate & Gravel
