While we’ve reviewed a number of different rieslings in the past few weeks, and a number of German rieslings in particular, one German province we haven’t highlighted yet is Pfalz. This is in fact the second largest wine province in Germany. Rheinhessen, frankly to the north of Pfalz, is the largest. You may also see Pfalz referred to as Palatinate, the English name for the province.
Like many German vintners, Reichsrat von Buhl has a long description going back to 1849. Since 2008 the estate has been working towards obtaining organic certification.
Honeysuckle, lime and pear aromas give this wine a pleasant nose, although the intensity is just moderate. The palate is semi-sweet with flavors like lime, apple, pineapple and peach. The acidity is excellent.
