Forster Winzerverein Riesling Kabinett Forster Stift Halbtrocken 2018  - Last Bottle

Forster Winzerverein Riesling Kabinett Forster Stift Halbtrocken 2018

"Ooops, I did it again…"

It happens every time -- popped this open, and somehow, like dark magic, the entire contents of the bottle disappeared, before we even dug into our leftover Thai food from this killer place in Oakland. And every time, we say: "WHY don’t we drink more Riesling?? This is, like…DOPE!" German Riesling, of course, we speak of, with its brilliant, how-do-they-do-it tautness of acidity and laser-focused fruit, with just a whisper of sweetness...oh man, so refreshing, so life-sustaining!! 

ELEVEN DOLLARS. That’s "11" dollars. More than 60% OFF the release price. Gorgeous, insanely quaffable lemon/lime goodness!! We bought every single case we could. 

To the deliciousness at hand (while it lasts, we sold out of EVERYTHING this weekend, so guess we gotta start buying more of this stuff) --- a modest 11.5% alcohol, SINGING, bursting, just begging to show off its citrus, grapefruity, lime and tangerine oil notes, zippy and savory and lingering with truly mouth-watering minerality and a hint of sweet. Outrageously drinkable on its own but man, get something spicy, or get some good cheese, BOOM, you’re going to be stoked! Will go quicker than any of us think!

"Halbtrocken" means "half-dry" and must meet specific criteria for acid and residual sugar level. This gives you and idea of what to expect Kabinett Riesling. This style accounts for 25% of all the wine produced in Germany.
