Weingut Dr. Heyden Oppenheimer Riesling Kabinett 2016
This wine displays an appealing bouquet of ripe apricots with lemon zest. On the palate, it is juicy with balanced acidity and has a hint of salty minerality from the limestone soils. A perfect match for strong Indian and Asian spiced dishes. Also fantastic with a spiced duck leg, dishes with acidic sauces, roasted vegetables, or soft cheeses.
100% Riesling. This is an exciting new estate, which has been established with the vineyards and assistance of Friedrich Baumann, who has now retired. Dr Karl Heyden founded the estate in 1999 with his wife, Anita and their two sons, Frank and Harry. Frank has completed his studies at the famous Geisenheim viticulture institute, and has already convinced the German critics. This young talented generation is already crafting great wines from these highly rated vineyards. Sadly, Dr. Karl Heyden died in 2005.
