Tasting Notes

A best value from a top estate in the Mosel. A giving riesling with waxy, fleshy notes and a slight spritz. Feinherb is an unregulated designation ever so slightly sweet. The grapes are hand-picked from the single-vineyard Falkenberg on the steep Piesporter hillside, just above Goldtröpfchen. Weingut Später-Veit uses only wild, ambient yeasts to ferment their wines in stainless-steel tanks. That spicy jerk chicken you've been marinating for your next BBQ will make a fine match.

Staff Pick Notes

Here's the ideal wine for summertime drinking: light, fresh, and delicious. Feinherb is an unregulated term that usually denotes a wine that's a little too sweet to be considered dry (or "Trocken"). Später-Veit walks that fine line with crisp mineral acidity balanced with a light kiss of sweetness. Where there's residual sugar, there's low alcohol, which is perfect for the humidity of a New York summer. Kick back and beat the heat with this super yummers Riesling!

The most useful words to know on German wine labels are “Kabinett,” which indicates an outstanding everyday wine, and “trocken,” which means...

Riesling

Though the trend is now in the other direction, for many years Riesling was known for producing wines with little alcohol and some residual sugar - too sweet for many modern wine drinkers. Though it's now cultivated worldwide, Riesling is nearly synonymous with German wine, and that country's winemakers have lately begun to produce some very exciting dry versions. They are careful to retain the...
