The Pfalz region in Germany is second only to the Mosel in acreage planted with the noble Riesling grape. Here it yields wines of substance and finesse, with a less austere acidity than their Mosel counterparts. Pleasant, mild white wines rich in bouquet and full of body.
Fritz Walter's is a great example. As mentioned above the emphasis is a little more on richness of texture and ripe fruit than the more vibrant acidity of Mosel examples. It's not lacking in Riesling character, however, as it is ripe citrus that dominates the palate. It's relatively dry and fresh, yet with structure and body, making a very versatile wine with or without food.
