Made in the Trocken style, which has very low residual sweetness producing a dry, crisp style of white wine. 50 Degrees has a fresh taste with delicious fruity notes of peaches, green apple, and citrus fruits and a long minerally finish. It is superb with fresh fish and seafood and goes really well with Rheingau Riesling frothed soup we are told!
G.H. von Mumm Pays Homage to the 50th Parallel North Superb Riesling Cuvee Created to Celebrate the Rheingau a Unique Region.
The Rheingau and its incomparably beautiful setting is a feast for the eyes and for the Riesling grape, a paradise. Conditions here are optimal for enabling this most noble of all grape varieties to truly develop its potential: south-facing slopes that are protected from cold, northerly winds by the Taunus Hills; the influence of the mild Gulf Stream; the Rhine, which is at once a source of moisture and a heat reservoir; and a favorable soils composed of Taunus quartzite beneath a layer of loam-loess. All of these components fulfill the prerequisites needed to produce top-quality Riesling wines.The 50th degree of latitude runs right through the middle of this unique region, marking one of the northernmost borders of viable viticulture. In 4304007honor of this, we’ve created a Riesling cuvee that embodies what one expects of a Rheingau Riesling: 50 Riesling.
