Stephan Muller, the current proprietor and winemaker, farms a number of excellent to exceptional vineyards near the village of Forst in Germany's Pfalz region. 2017 was a vintage that emphasized the good qualities of these wines. Technically, the wine gives fruit, mineral, and a lively, refreshing finish. The not-so- technical description would include words like "Yummy" and "Wow - that's refreshing!" Not surprisingly, this Riesling pairs incredibly well with food. Try this with savory dishes like classic roast chicken or grilled pork loin. But be warned! If you open a bottle before the meal starts, be sure you have a backup ready.
