G. H. Von Mumm
50° Riesling Trocken (Rheingau)
Best Value Riesling in Australia!
Yes we'll put our necks on the block and say it! G.H. Von Mumm 50 Degree is the "Best value riesling in Australia" and something to behold.
G.H. von Mumm pays homage to the 50th parallel north superb Riesling Cuvee created to celebrate the Rheingau – a unique region.
The Rheingau and its incomparably beautiful setting is a feast for the eyes – and for the Riesling grape, a paradise. Conditions here are optimal for enabling this most noble of all grape varieties to truly develop its potential: south-facing slopes that are protected from the cold, northerly winds by the Taunus Hills; the influence of the mild Gulf Stream; the Rhine which is at once a source of moisture and a heat reservoir; and favourable soils composed of Taunus quartzite beneath a layer of loam-loess. All of these components fulfil the prerequisites needed to produce top-quality Riesling wines.
The 50th degree of latitude runs right through the middle of this unique region, marking one of the northernmost borders of viable viticulture. In honour of this, the G.H. von Mumm wine estate has created a Riesling Cuvee that embodies what one would expect of a Rheingau Riesling.
The nose is clean with generous aromas of ripe grapefruit, peach and apricot. Fresh on the palate, fruit driven with clear lemon acidity and pure mineral notes.
