Karl Josef 2019 Piesporter Michelsberg Spätlese Riesling
If you’re unfamiliar with Rieslings, or wine with umlauts tend to scare you off, here’s your chance to jump aboard the Mosel Valley express. The region is the home base of German wine production, much of it Riesling, with a terroir encompassing steep slopes, slate stone soils, sun-filled days, and the winding river itself. Growers like Karl Josef are scattered throughout the valley working in growers’ cooperatives famous for producing incredible wines at incredibly competitive prices. This Spätlese (late harvest style Riesling) is one such bottle and is a zippy little thing — sweet with citrus and florals but balanced with a tart panache.
