Ratzenberger is located smack in the heart of the the beautiful Renaissance town of Bacharach. The vineyards are situated on super steep, terraced and sun rich hills that has the added benefit of being protected by the Rhine River’s strong winds. The Rieslings of the Mittelrhein typically have great extraction and structure — yet are always marked by outstanding acidity, making them particularly enjoyable when paired with food. Ratzenberger in particular makes wines with great structure and length, which brings class and sophistication to these age-worthy whites.
A lot of folks look to Riesling for Thanksgiving because of its strong aromatics and it’s wonderfully ability to pair well with foods. For those of you looking for a semi-dry Riesling to pair with a plate full of everything, you don’t have to look any further. Ratzenberger is a benchmark in the region and their consistency of making expressive, classy Riesling continues with the newly released 2019 Kabintt Feinherb. It manages to bring to the table savory notes, sweet notes and tangy acidic notes. It’s a versatile bottle of white, that’s for sure.
