Wine Pick: Bassermann-Jordan Pfalz Trocken Riesling 2012
A centuries-old German winery excels with this fruity yet dry gem.
July 24, 2015
We all need more riesling in our lives. There’s something undeniably uplifting about wines made from Germany’s noble white grape, and this Pfalz beauty hits all the brain’s pleasure centres. Aromas of white peach and jasmine mark the exotic nose, while succulent flavours of citrus, apricot, and green apple sizzle on the palate. “Trocken” means dry, and you’ll find impeccable balance on the fruity, minerally, savoury finish. Bassermann-Jordan’s 300 years of experience in farming riesling shows in every satisfying sip—especially if you pair this wine with black-pepper-and-coriander-infused kai yang, or tangy prawn ceviche.
