Here is another wine from a business trip dinner! I was in the mood for something light and this German Riesling jumped out at me from the menu. It is no secret that I love a good German Riesling, and this certainly fit the bill! 

The Seeker German Riesling

I had never heard of The Seeker line of wines before, but their concept seems really neat! They search out small family wineries and label them for importing. They currently have 9 different varietals from Chardonnay to Rosé  to Malbec.

Winemaker Notes:

“Steep vineyard sites in Trittenheim and Piesport feature fine, mineral-rich slate soil and optimal exposure to sun and wind, giving the wine its distinctive, classic and world-renowned flavors. The vineyards are 100% hand-harvested to ensure top-quality grape selection. Traditional winemaking methods are observed, with individual wine-pressing techniques passed down through generations.” 

~ The Seeker Wines

Wine Notes:

  • Alcohol: 11.7%
  • Varietal/Blend: 100% Riesling
  • Fermenting/Aging: stainless steel & old oak casks

Tasting Notes:

This off-dry Riesling has a pleasant balance of sweetness and acidity. Aromas of citrus, lemon, and stone fruits. Very smooth on the palate with flavors of green apple, peach, and a pineapple finish.

This German Riesling would pair amazingly with some spicy Asian or Indian food. Or it would also go well with the clean freshness of sushi or a lovely summer salad.

This is certainly a wine, and a brand, that I’ll look out for in the future.  And in the under $20 a bottle price point, there is a lot of value there! 

Bouns! The labels are beautiful and creative. So why not pick this up as a hostess gift for a summer party? Just don’t forget to get one for yourself too!

About Wine, Dine, and Roam

Hi! I’m Jess Walker and fell in love with wine back in 2015. And not just drinking wine, but learning all things about it. How each grape variety produces different flavors in wine when grown in different areas,  the affects of wine making practices on the finished wine, the culture surrounding wine in different areas. The list goes on!
