⭐️87/100⭐️ Weingut Petri Riesling Spätlese “Herxheimer Himmelreich”, 2011 📍Pfalz, Germany🇩🇪 🍇 100% Riesling ⚡️12,5% Tasted: December 2020 12th generation of Petri winemakers are running this old winery located in the village of Herxheim am Berg in one of the 13 Anbaugebiete (wine growing regions) of Germany called Pfalz (the Palatine region), where they cultivate 21 hectares of vines. The business is dating back to 1655, when the Petris arrived from Tyrol working as barrel makers before starting the winemaking. Ever since, the focus has been on environment-friendly cultivation with no chemicals in the vineyards and only harvest by hand to secure the health and natural development of their agricultural areas. The wine undergo slow fermentation on steel to preserve the Riesling’s precious characteristics before maturation in big 80 years old wooden barrels of 3000 liters to gain some more complexity and balance the structure. Acid: 8,5 g/L Residual sugar: 16,4 g/L This wine’s aromas are what Riesling dreams are made of. It brings notes of ripe pear and candied ginger followed by white fresh mushrooms, nice hints of old eraser or tennis balls and melted plastic, acacia honey and lemon peel and some nice petrol starting to show muscles without taking over yet. The palate is oily, off-dry and fresh offering lovely notes of peach, dried apricot, lemon peel and mild honey. The balance between the sweetness and the acidity is just lovely. I’ve been working with these wines for some years having tried most of their portfolio from different vintages. They all show fine quality, but this exact one (with this age) is the best experience I’ve had from Petri. For the price, their wines are really nice, btw. If you’re ever searching for these wines, the labels have changed quite a lot, but the (aged) content doesn’t disappoint. #wine #winelover #riesling #weingutpetri #pfalz #germany #germanwine #vino #vinobianco #vin #vinblanc #wei ißwein #vinoblanco #wineporn #gourmet #finewine #winereview #winetime #winetasting #instawine #cheers #organicwine #gastronomy #foodporn #vintagewine #ワイン #葡萄酒 #topwine #vintage e #🍷
