The bocksbeutel is back!


The 2014 Weingut Hans Wirsching, Iphofer, Silvaner Trocken, Franken is a lively wine with pure white fruit flavors and a chalky finish.  It drinks best over two nights when it offers up some fat and dried herbs. It is a good example of acidity and minerality which I recommend you drink now.  This wine is available at MacArthur Beverages.

2014 Weingut Hans Wirsching, Iphofer, Silvaner Trocken, Franken – $17
Imported by Rudi Wiest. Alcohol 12%.  The white fruit flavors became nutty in the middle followed by a chalky stone finish.  The wine is rather lively, almost with a prickle, from acidity that carries it through the finish.  It does take on some fat and ripeness at the start followed by dried herbs and some tannins.  ** Now – 2017.
