Description
 
ABOUT:Battenfeld Spanier is a biodynamic wine producer from the Rheinhessen, the largest wine region in Germany which encompass the towns of Mainz, Worms, Alzey, Bingen. Compared to the exalted regions of the Mosel and Rheingau, the Rheinhessen has a sketchy rep, especially for those who remember the inferior, yellow-ish plonk called Liebfraumilch. Over the last few decades it has been making a bit of a splash with great wines being birthed in the hillsides, and why not? Undulating hills, warmth, loess and limestone mixed with sand. Pretty perfect says the smartest person in the room, and the Battenfeld Spanier wines are the glitter on the waves.

TASTE: Yellow, red, and green apple aromas and flavors are in harmony, a nice blend of a sweet yellow with a tart green. If you can get past the apple trance you’ll find honey, lemon, orange and a salty edge. Medium body and alcohol with high acidity and a lengthy finish. The taste of petrol often comes up when tasting German Rieslings, almost to a default, like you’re suppose to be looking for it. This is a finely balanced example of a terrific, biodynamic wine from a region going through a quality renaissance.

PAIR: roasted winter vegetables, nasi goring, pumpkin and chili stir fry, Indonesian peanut fritters, and vegetable nasi goring.
