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!

I love all things wine: drinking it, learning about how it's made, visiting where it's made, pairing with foods! I'm naturally curious, so back in 2013 during my first trip to Europe when I tasted my first glass of fantastic Rioja, I was hooked and had to start learning all I could on the subject. After a long time of friends asking me for wines to try or activities to add to their vacation itineraries, I decided to start a blog to write it all down. And that is how Wine, Dine, and Roam began!
