I wrote about the 2012 version of today’s selection about two years ago, but now it’s the turn for the Pfeffingen Dry Riesling 2013, from Germany’s bucolic Pfalz region, which extends 53 miles in a 301 Labellong peninsular shape south from Rheinhessen to the French border. In 2012, a chilly wet Summer in Germany was succeeded by warmth in September and October, allowing grapes to ripen nicely and providing many excellent wines. The opposite case prevailed in 2013, when a mild Summer yielded to rain in September and October, the bane of growers and winemakers. The result in this case is a very dry riesling that focuses on acidity and mineral elements rather than the forwardness of succulent fruit. Still, the medium gold-hued Pfeffingen Dry Riesling 2013, the basic offering from this estate that traces its origin to 1622, delivers plenty of advantages, if not charm. Initial (and quite pretty) aromas of jasmine, heather and honeydew melon, peach and lychee, lime peel and lemongrass open to the rigorous nature of burgeoning limestone and flint minerality that extends all the way down through the wine’s framework and foundation. Bright scintillating acid leads to a fairly bracing damp stone, sea-salt and grapefruit-pith finish. 12.5 percent alcohol. An essential accompaniment to fresh oysters and grilled shrimp or mussels, though we drank a glass or two with salmon, marinated simply in olive oil and lemon juice, salt and pepper, and seared in the cast-iron skillet. Now through 2018 or ’19. Very Good+. About $16, a local purchase.
