Balthasar Ress' Hattenheimer Schutzenhaus is a wonderfully balanced and mouthwatering wine with great finesse.
Aromas of smoke and slate, lemon drops and wild flowers, apricots in honey and marmalade with earthy, forest floor undertones. The palate is complex - layers of peach, green apples, honey and a bit of mushroom lead to a racy lemony marmalade finish. Wonderful persistence and any residual sweetness is swept up by brisk acidity.
A great wine for holiday dinners - think ham, turkey, stuffing and mashed yams...
