"Smells like strawberries and straw after cool morning rain. Wonderful strawberry fruit on this wine. Plus a little cheeky kick of purple. Like a wine gum left in the moth. Gentle spice dustiness. Iris flowers. Dry finish." / Tamlyn Currin @ Jancis Robinson / 16 points
Allendorf's Charta Riesling is an off-dry white wine with a harmonious character. The palate reflects a balance between fruit and acidity, which is full of finesse. The finish has a refreshing structure. A real of the Rheingau. Juicy, expressive and full of minerality.
The Charta wine is made from a selection of grapes from Allendorf's best vineyards. In Winkel and Geisenheim their grapes grow on 30-50 years old vines. The base wines for this high-quality cuveé originate exclusively from the classified VDP.Grosse Lagen sites.
The criteria for Charta wines that have in effect since. 1983 and that are based on the tradition of proven Rheingau quality requirements have significantly contributed to establishing a high profile band image for Rheingau Riesling wines. The Charta paved the way for the VDP.Grosse Gewächs. This means that historically it is the big brother, taste wise little sister of their GG's.
Food Recommendation: The ideal accompaniment to food. Goes just as well with summer salad as with fish or schnitzel. Most wines fail to go well with soups.
