Bollig Lehnert Piesporter Kabinett Riesling 2015
Stefan Bollig is passionately devoted to his work and is a fine example of the new generation of Mosel vintners. The family has been producing wine since the 17th Century, but new cellars and house have been built on the outskirts of Trittenheim. Stefan has been managing the estate since 1987, after completing his viticulture studies and practical experience in Trier and Bad Kreuznach. Stefan Bollig's wines are stylish, crisp and classic with a fine fruity elegance and good mineral content, not showing excessive sweetness.

Wine EnthusiastSmoke and flint notes on the nose introduce this energizing Riesling. On the palate, zingy lemon and tangerine flavors are softened by a sweet veil of honey and stone fruit. It's a slender, fine-footed wine but offers exhilarating refreshment.
Wine SpectatorZesty and savory, with good cut to the white berry and currant flavors, accented by slate and minerally notes. Dried sage details show on the finish. Drink now through 2019. 440 cases made.
