Weingut Franzen - Der Sommer war sehr Gross 2015
What a top Riesling. Franzen - Der Sommer war sehr Gross / 2015 (88 points)
Light golden yelllow in color. In the nose a lot of delicious fresh aromas such as nectarines, apricot, citrus with a bit mint and that cool spice from the Mosel.
On the palate a wonderful interplay between the sweetness of yellow fruit and the fresh Riesling acidity, assisted by cool seasoning. Great minerality and a medium length finish. Really a top Riesling and this is their basic Riesling!!
THAT SAYS THE OWNER
In 2011 we started the "summer project". We wanted to add a new wine to the assortment without buying new vineyards. So we thought we would simply unite all our top layers in one bottle. A Cuvee that presents the cross section of our vineyards and combines all the advantages of the individual vineyards in a wine. So The summer was very great also the perfect Riesling for the wine lovers who can not decide between Calmont and Frauenberg.
Since the summer was very large Riesling already has a little more fruit, he comes very well with some more powerful food. Whether it is now a veal fillet or a hearty steak, a cheese plate or even the cheese fondue - this Riesling is the right companion.
