October Connoisseur: Oktoberfest: Wine Edition 

Although there’s no wine equivalent for Oktoberfest, we’re  fine with drinking German wines all year round! For this  month’s Connoisseur, we’ve devoted our entire selection  to some really interesting wines, all from (you guessed it) -  Germany! 

NV Fritz-Muller “Muller Thurgau” Trocken Secco  (Rheinhessen, Germany) 
This wine is made in a gorgeous style called perlwein,  Germany’s answer to Prosecco. A lightly sparkling white  wine, with a lively palate of zesty lime and fresh herbs is  rounded out by a chalky minerality and soft texture. This is  for baked fish, shrimp scampi, and fried clams.  

*6W* 2019 Sybille Kuntz Trocken Riesling (Mosel, Germany) 
A staff favorite here at The Urban Grape, this dry Riesling  ignites your palate with polished aromas of Asian pear,  green apple, and florality, with world-famous Mosel  minerality. Sybille is a visionary in the region, and was one  of the first winemakers in the Mosel to incorporate organic  & biodynamic viticultural practices. Don’t sleep on this one! 

*1R* 2018 Koehler-Ruprecht Pinot Noir (Pfalz, Germany)
Minimal intervention winemaking at the very highest  level! Hand-harvested grapes aged in stainless steel are  spontaneously fermented for a pure and clean expression  of Pinot noir. Aromatically, the wine shows tart red berry  fruit,with a taut & vervy presentation on the palate. Serve  with flaky white fish, Gouda cheeses, or butternut squash  ravioli.  

*3R* 2019 August Kesseler “Daily August” Pinot Noir  (Rheingau, Germany) 
This juicy & compelling Pinot Noir explodes with black  cherry, pomegranate, and raspberry notes, along with an  energetic & fruity mouthfeel. It finishes silky, with textbook  minerality & earthy spice. This wine is great with roasted  chicken or Brie style cheeses.
