In the midst of the Moscato craze that has been dominating the sweet-white wine drinking world of late, it might be time to step back and enjoy a wine that is still fruit laden and refreshing without the excessive sweetness that some moscatos contain.  

The Jacob Heims 2012 Steep Slope Riesling is a great summertime wine from the Mosel region of Germany which is known for its steep slopes and slate filled terrior. We have carried this wine for a few years now and it never disappoints. The 2012 vintage is no exception.  It is light and refreshing with aromas of peaches, tangerine and of course, some minerality. It has tasting notes of lime with a hint of apricot, and finishes with crisp green apple. This Riesling is off-dry but has enough honest sweetness to serve as beach quencher, or see how well it pairs with garlic, chili and ginger spices that makes it ideal for Thai curry dishes.
