"Please understand that Riesling is the King of Grapes. Know this. If you, as a wine novice, bring a bottle of Karthäuserhof ("car-TOYS-uhr-hofe") to a party, your friends will be amazed. They may not be able to understand why this almost-perfect study in acid, mineral and fruit is the best wine they've ever had, but they will know that you brought it. And you'll be the only one who can pronounce the name."
