Soil Type red slate and sandstone
In a region most recently known for high-yielding, innocuous varieties like Sylvaner and Muller-Thurgau that have tainted the reputation of German wine as a whole, Walter Strub and his son Sebastian are crafting transparent, pure expressions of Riesling on slopes along the Rhine River in Nierstein. The Strub family has been making wine in Germany's Rheinhessen region since 1710.
Even with the estate wines, Strub attaches great importance to the typical origin. Of the grapes. The flavors of lemon, grapefruit and pineapple can be tasted very clearly in this terroir-driven Riesling. Ideal wine for hot summer nights.
Enjoy Strub Riesling Estate Trocken over the next 4-5 years with pan-fried trout, grilled shrimp, fried chicken, and spicy Thai dishes.
