Organic German Riesling

You don't find all that many organic wines in Germany. It's surprising. I suppose in the Mosel it's hard to be organic, when you have small plots of vines in many vineyards, some of which are so steep that they have to be sprayed by helicopter. Anyway, here's an organic Riesling from the Rheingau that I quite liked.

Peter Jakob Kuhn Riesling Trocken QbA 2007 Rheingau
11% alcohol. Yellow colour. Savoury, minerally, limey nose with a hint of honeysuckle and apple. The palate is bone dry and mineralic with complex savoury, citrussy fruit and good acidity. Full flavoured with good food compatibility. 88/100 (£11.99 The Winery)

But especially at the Mosel they do existe and you can even see on a blog, how it's possible to work organically on the steep hills:


It's the Weingut Steffens-Kess at Reil/Mosel.

I order egularily their beautiful, mineral dry Rieslings - fro the "ordinary" to the Spätlese and Auslese, they never decived me:-).

Now if only there was a way to prevent petrol fumes and residues from possibly lingering...
Quite impressive all the same though.
