It’s time for another riesling review. Why? Because riesling is awesome!
When it comes to awesome riesling, I mostly gravitate toward German riesling. Most of the German riesling I come across come from the Mosel or Rheinghau regions, but if you love riesling there’s another region of Germany you should know: Nahe.
Residing along the banks of the river Nahe, a tributary to the Rhine, the Nahe has a moderate climate largely thanks to the Soonwald mountain range that helps the area contain its warmth. The result is an exception region for growing wine.
This riesling from Bex is a great example of not only good riesling from the Nahe, but bargain-priced good riesling from the Nahe.
Floral, apple and mineral aromas give this wine a well balanced and enjoyable nose. The palate brings tart green apple and citrus flavors that are bright and linger long on the finish. The mouthfeel is nice and the acidity is perfect. Overall, It’s a fairly simple but delicious wine.
