Louis Guntrum Riesling Royal Blue 2015

Member Review by Meshell Leslie O'Neal:

In April 2011, my husband and I went to our first wine tasting in Biloxi, Mississippi at the IP Casino. We tasted many wonderful wines. My hubsand and I were won over by three of Louis Guntrum's Reislings. Of those three, Royal Blue was our absolute favorite! Not just in those three wines, but out of all of the wines we tasted, Royal Blue won us over into the reisling category! Beautiful floral aromas, sweet and smooth, easy to drink, and wonderful after-taste! Louis Guntrum Reisling Royal Blue 2009 is a must try! Thank you Louis for a wonderful first time at our first wine tasting! Meeting you and chatting with you was the highlight of our night!

Steel everywhere. This is some futuristic stuff. Very food friendly. Pair with something Asian.

"Fine pale lemony yellow, floral, slightly spicy and hints of dry honey ont he nose; rich and smooth (...), nice clean fruit and good regional expression.", comments Steven Spurrier. This DRY Riesling cannot be compared with any of the wines recommended below as "similar wines", since this Riesling is DRY, whereas all the wines recommended below have a certain amount of residual sweetness. - Since this comment comes from the winemaker of Guntrum Dry Riesling, I do not want to rate my own wine. Enjoy Guntrum Dry Riesling - cheers, Louis Konstantin Guntrum.

Dry Riesling. Delicate fragrance of white peaches, apricot and juicy pears. The classical Riesling in expression and elegance. Aperitif, all kind of seafood in different styles of preparation, veal, salads. Louis Guntrum Website

Wine Tasting NotesGuntrum, famous for putting some of their most delicious wines in attractively colored bottles chose the color yellow for this Spatlese to symbolize Good Luck. Peaches and apricots, green apples and acidity of ripe pineapples. Medium sweetness level for excellent food pairings. Long finish. A perfect gift for a friend or to serve at your next party. It is fresh and assertive, yet mild in taste. Medium fruit with good acidity makes this wine an excellent match with Mexican and Asian cuisine.

Elegant and classical Riesling scent, paired with aromas of tropical fruits. Green apples and citrus, pineapple and melon. Excellent balance of sweetness and acidity.
