Tasting Notes

Winery Notes: "We at Reichsrat von Buhl rely on dry wines. On really dry wines. Dry in German wine regulations can be up to 9g/L of residual sugar. And that is not dry. Or not dry enough. At least not for us. With us is "dry" between 0 and 4g residual sugar. But on the bottle, the law is to just put "dry" on it. Therefore, we have considered visualizing our type of dry, namely bone-dry, and especially on the label. The next consideration was to integrate the respective wine aromas visually into the skull, which stands for "bochentrocken". Et voilà - von Buhl Bone Dry was born!" This Riesling has just 1.1g/L residual sugar! At a very moderate 12% Alc and racy 6.7 TA...this is a fresh, zesty, palate cleansing Riesling that wildly drinkable and refreshing - perfect for summer sipping. (p.s. the label is pretty awesome and changes under a black light too - perfect for Halloween / Día de los Muertos!) Ryan Woodhouse - K&L Germany Wine Buyer

    While I'm fine with sweet riesling, I'm well aware that we're living in the new age of bone dry everything. Sugar is the enemy to a lot of modern drinkers, so why not see what real German riesling tastes like when it's "bone dry"? This is a total winner of a wine from front to back. The first sip lights up the taste buds with tingly and tangy acidity and the finish is a laser beam of fresh acidity and more tangy fruit, accented with spice and zip. I could drink this all day long (and I plan to at some point this weekend).
