I Try a Wine from Weingut Strub

This is the first wine I have tasted from Weingut J. & H.A. Strub which is amazing because the Strub family has been producing wine in the Rheinhessen since 1710.  This wine is produced from the fruit of Niersteiner Pattenthal.  This vineyard is Strub’s most northern holding in the Roten Hang (red slope).  The red slate soils have a high mineral content and heat up quickly.  With an east and south-east exposure the vineyard are protected from the west winds.  The fruit is whole cluster pressed and produced in stainless steel.  If you drink this wine now give it several hours of air in the decanter.  This will bring it together or simply cellar it for the future.  This is a fun wine to drink with its high-acidity well balance before it make one long-lasting appearance in the aftertaste.

The label and capsule design is rather cool.  Fuenfwerken is responsible for the Strub’s branding.  The scorpion represents the 250 million year old fossil-rich soils upon which the vines are planted on.  The colorful cut-out is indicative of the sweetness level of the wine.  This wine is currently available at MacArthur Beverages.

2010 Weingut J. & H.A. Strub, Riesling Spatlese, Niersteiner Pettenthal, Rheinhessen – $24
A Terry Theise Estate selection.  This wine is 100% Riesling.  The color is a light straw-yellow.  The nose is honeyed with white tropical fruit.  In the mouth the wine starts off very lively with a hint of ripe tropical fruit.  The powerful acidity is in play then integrates inside of the flavors before reappearing big-time in the aftertaste.  There is a lot of presence to the wine with flavors of ripe fruit, sweet spice, a good flowing body, and minerals in the finish.  *** Now-2022.
