Weingut Stefan Meyer - Ein Liter Riesling - Trocken 2021 (1L)
The Meyer family has lived in Rhodt, a village in the Pfalz region of Germany, since the 1700's. However, it wasn't until 1950 that Karl Hermann Meyer founded the family winery and began bottling his own wine. Today, Stefan Meyer is the third generation to run this 16 hectare estate. Stefan fully respects and continues what he calls the "powerful tradition" his father and grandfather created in the winery, while also embracing innovation and modernization. The Meyer vineyards are located in Rhodt unter Reitburg, a village situated next to the Palatinate Forest. All work in the vineyard is organic (the estate is working toward certification through Ecovin), and all Stefan's wines are spontaneously fermented for maximum complexity.
Stefan Meyer's Ein Liter Riesling is highly aromatic with a nose of honeyed orchard fruits accented with a touch of white flowers. On the palate, this Riesling is crisp and refreshing with flavors of green apple and Asian pear that cling to a spine of fine minerality and vibrant acidity. Excellent with seafood, but can also be enjoyed with pork schnitzel and lemon and herb-scented spätzle.
