For this dry Riesling, we aim to produce a wine that has distinct, bright acidity yet also delivers ripe, luscious fruit on the mid-palate and finish. Dry Rieslings, for some people, are simply too austere. They lack the beautiful, often tropical Riesling flavors that arise from harvesting fully-ripe fruit in the vineyard. For our Dry Riesling #239, we seek to achieve maximum ripeness in the vineyard. This allows us to create a bright, crackling Dry Riesling that also has intense tropical fruit characteristics. Riesling is one of the world's most food-friendly wines. Dry Rieslings tend to have a more angular and "structured" feel. They can pair very well with creamier foods or other dense preparations like fried chicken or fish. This Dry Riesling #239 has the body and weight to stand up to nearly any white meat, whether pork, chicken or seafood.

The 2020 Dry Riesling No. 239 comes in with five grams of residual sugar, 7.8 of total acidity and 13.1% alcohol. This is quite a performance, often stunning. Showing superb concentration, this adds power and a long finish. There's plenty of tension, and the acidity slices through the fruit without the wine ever becoming shrill. It always emphasizes its fruit, but that fruit is always perfectly supported by the brilliant structure. It will need a food pairing to show its best. The only real question here is how much it might improve if you have the patience to cellar it for a few years. If it gets no better, it is still super. For the moment, it looks like one of the finest bargains in this report, which is full of them.
