Falkenstein makes light-bodied, tangy, wholesome, dry-tasting Saar Rieslings, as well as some with more noticeable residual sugar. These old-style Saar wines often retain a lively, natural effervescence (spritzig) from fermentation. In other words, they go down well—Trinkfluss in German. The Spätlese trocken from Krettnacher Altenberg is usually the driest Riesling of the bunch—a wine for diehard Falkenstein fans, who like their Saar Riesling herb, or pleasantly astringent.
