The wine highlighted in February is a gorgeous off-dry food friendly wine from a probably still less well-known Estate.

When 2010 was getting bottled, we were concerned that the high level of acidity would be detrimental for dry wines but actually anticipated that some great food-friendly off-dry wines could be made. Well we were not disappointed and lovers of this style will find several great examples on the market.
One (if not the) best one is the Serriger Würtzberg Kabinett Feinherb from Dr. Siemens. The Dr. Siemens Estate in Serrig may not (yet) have the aura of some of his illustrious colleagues, despite producing delicious and food-friendly wines year-in year-out. Despite the high quality, we feel it outdid itself in this wine, which allies lightness, intensity and balance.
Serriger Würtzberg Riesling Kabinett Feinherb
This offers a stunningly fresh and pure nose of white flowers with delicate notes of peach, lime, grapefruit and pineapple. The wine is a true Kabinett in style, but is fruitier than most Feinherb bottlings, making it a great companion for food. The finish is mouth-watering and well balanced. This is delicious and highly recommended! Now-2016
