The number 501 refers to the starting point of the Rheingau, the largest and most famous Riesling region of the world along the Rhine river, precisely 501 kilometers from its source in Switzerland. The cool climate conditions in the Rheingau bring forth well- balanced, light, and fruit driven wines that truly reflect the taste of this beautiful region.
KM 501 is a new approach to the world of fine Riesling from the famous Ress family, producing wine in this region since 1870.
On the nose: There are fresh white fruit characteristics with pomelo pulp, white grape juice, ripe apples, crushed apricots, citrus rind and chalky minerals.
On the palate: The wine is light and refreshing and incredibly soft, with cooked pears, apricots, red apples.
This is delicious by the glass alone or together with chicken piccata, for example.
