St. Antony

The St. Antony vineyards are in the prestigious "Roter Hang" section of the Rheinhessen that is know for the deeply flavored and mineral rich wines from the iron enriched (the Roter, or Red part of the name) clay soils that have made other producers such as Keller being world famous.  Our initial selection is of three of their wines and I will look to add more once I've created more awareness about their wonderful wines.


The Wines

Weissburgunder 2017


This is very interesting and pleasant Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc) with aromas of apples, pears, and honeysuckle. There are citrusy flavors with lemony notes and also flavors of honeydew melon.  Overall this is light and refreshing, has good balance, and perfect acidity.


Food pairings would include sole, sea bass, seafood salads, grilled chicken, baked chicken, pasta with garlic and oil or a light cream sauce, vegetable stir fry, Asian noodle dishes, green salads, and hard cheeses.


Blaufrankisch  “Am Turm” 2016

This is a very expressive Blaufrankisch aromas of fresh baked bread, rich plums, and cherry compote.  Flavors are of dark cherries, dark plums, and a hint of cocoa.  There is a medium body but which saturates your palate.  The rich flavors are balanced and complemented by mild acidity and tannins.


Food pairings would include Filet Mignon, New York Steak, lamb, duck, venison, wild boar, salmon, grilled tuna, spicy Asian beef dishes, pasta with mild tomato sauce, grilled vegetables, and other Asian stir fry and noodle dishes.
