Review:

"The 2015 Riesling Rheingau Honigberg Spätlese is a terrific value as well as an outstanding wine. Offering notable purity in its quince, sugared citrus, and minty aromas and flavors, it’s medium-bodied, with bright, piercing acidity, good depth of fruit, and a clean, crisp finish. It’s going to shine on the dinner table and should evolve nicely."

Winery: Winzer Von Erbach

The Winzer Von Erbach Estate
The wine-growers association was founded in 1897. Today 45 vintners deliver grapes from the Erbach and Kiedrich vineyards to the cellar. There is close a relationship with the vintners, who are all part owners of their winery, all of whom have access to highly skilled and experienced viticultural advice. The cellar was built in 1903 in the "Art Nouveau" style. Today they are the most highly rated Wine cooperation in the Rheingau region, well known for producing high quality Riesling wines with a strong price-value relationship.
