Messmer Riesling Feinherb Muschelkalk 2014, Pfalz, Germany

Muschelkalk originated in shallow fossiliferous sea basins with predominantly calcareous deposits that have solidified and formed into rocks. This deposit of limestone sediments occurred about 243 to 235 million years ago. The limestone rocks are usually characterized by light gray to beige hues. A spicy tangy Riesling that’s oblique to fruits or flowers. Superbly made wines, exceptional clarity and polish in a keenly etched and chiseled style. Has soared ahead to take its place among the best estates in the Pfalz the last few years. Sure-handed with a multitude of grape varieties. What unites them is clarity and specificity.
