Rand's's Bio

 

Buyer of: German Wine, Alsace, Australia, Bordeaux, South-West France, Jura

Rand has had a passion for wine since he was but a tyke growing up in Austria. At the tender age of five, he would stealthily make his way around the table after dinner parties, as the adults were saying their good-byes in the hallway, and drain the last drops from each glass. Even then he could not imagine anything more alluring than the heady aroma of those last resiny droplets of Zweigelt or the honeysuckle-scented dregs of Riesling shimmering at the bottom of crystal goblets.

Later in life, Rand became fascinated with the process that transforms the humble grape into the magical elixir Hemingway called “one of the most civilized things in the world” and began to read everything he could get his hands on about viticulture and wine making. Inevitably, his studies led him to explore the world’s many wine regions, grape varieties, and wine styles, and to share his fascination with others as a freelance wine educator and adviser in Utah.

 

In 2012, after 20 years in the credit industry, Rand’s passion for all things wine took a radical turn. He decided to move to New York to pursue his wine education more seriously and to begin a full-time career in wine. Rand now gets to share his love of Riesling and the many other wonderful Teutonic whites and reds at 67 Wine as buyer for German wines. He is always excited to turn our customers on to something new, fun, and delicious in the fascinating world of wine.

Rand's Wine Selection - Staffelter Hof Riesling Paradies 2013


The Story

On a recent trip to the middle Mosel wine Region I made a stop in the quaint village of Krov. Here I visited Staffelter Hof, one of the oldest wineries in the world, to meet with a group of young winemakers who call themselves the Klitzekleine Ring (Little Tiny Ring). Jan Klein of Staffelter Hof is part of this community of winemakers whose mission includes saving some of the extremely steep vineyard slopes that would otherwise have been abandoned. The group cleverly calls this program 'Bergrettung,' a pun on the German word for mountain rescue. Jan's wines come from these uber-steep vineyards, which makes it almost unbelievable that he has converted them to Eco-Vin certified Organic farming. As I tasted through Staffelter Hof's range of Rieslings over a fabulous lunch of Spatzle and Beef Rouladen, I fell in love with their purity of fruit, perfectly balanced acidity, and classic slatey minerality. I knew at the first sip that I wanted to bring these wines to our 67 Wine customers. The aptly named Staffelter Hof Riesling Paradies arrived in the store this week and is ready for you to enjoy.

Tasting Note

A fabulously fresh, nearly dry Riesling, beautifully composed with white berry fruit, citrus, a touch of mountain grasses and herbs, and the beginnings of petrol.

Food Pairing

This wine's balance of delicacy and power makes it super versatile and food-friendly. The pleasant touch of sweetness in no way distracts, as it is balanced with zippy acidity and an intriguing hint of freshly mown grass. It paired wonderfully with a dish as assertively flavored as Beef Rouladen, but would also be a perfect match with lighter fare such as fried or baked fish and spicy South-East Asian fare.
