94 Points - Stephen Reinhardt (erobertparker.com)

The 2015 Rheingau Riesling Trocken Lorcher Krone has a very pure and chalky/smoky bouquet with lemon fruit. On the palate, this is a full-bodied, concentrated, round, piquant and well-structured Riesling with a silky texture, but great finesse. The finish is very pure, compact and very salty. This is great dry Riesling from Lorch.

Zalto Denk-Art Universal Glass

For richer, oaked Sauvignon Blancs such as The Fuder, white Graves or Semillon/Sauvignon blends. For young and non-vintage Champagne we recommend Zalto Universal. However, the Zalto Universal is a very good all-rounder, designed for all types of wines but may not maximize the potential of certain wine as much as the Bordeaux or Burgundy glass.

Producer

The daughter of two doctors, Eva Fricke was born in a small village in Lower Saxony. She was for a long time winemaker at Leitz, one of the best known Rheingau wineries, after her passion for wine was born during a practical training visit on a vineyard in South Africa. Her own project began while she was still employed there and in 2011 she had grown to the point that she is now organically producing a range of expressive Rieslings from her winery in Keidrich that show the minerality of the sale and quartzite soils of the area.

Region

The Rheingau or Rhine region is in the state of Hesse, North of Frankfurt in Germany. It is a south-facing slab of vineyards situated on gentle slopes which lead down to the river Rhine that flows through the region. Many vines have been planted along the banks of the river in south-facing vineyards protected from the chill winds by the Taunus Mountains to the immediate north. It was for years regarded as Germany’s noblest wine region and the best wines here (accounting for almost 80% of the vines grown in this region) are invariably Rieslings with strongly pronounced mineral qualities and more body than those of the Mosel or other German Rieslings. Pinot Noir takes second place with approximately 12% of the vines.
