Tasting Notes

This comes from the prized Saumagen vineyard from Koehler-Ruprecht's estate in the Pfalz.

Staff Pick Notes

It is officially springtime in the city, and the perfect wine pairing for this beautiful weather is Riesling. Rain, shine, or sunshowers this Kallstadter Saumagen Kabinett trocken will sooth your troubles and ease your pain. Riesling is the best!!! Koehler-Ruprecht is dry joy in a glass.

The Saumagen vineyard is named for it's shape-that of a sow's stomach. The limestone soils here contribute a lovely minerality, and aging in used German oak barrels adds plush texture.
