Rings, run by brothers Steffen and Andreas Rings, is not so much one of Germany's rising stars as a risen one. The bone-dry 2015 Ungsteiner Nussriegel, from an erste lage (the German equivalent of a first growth) is typically exciting, with intense green-apple, spice and peach flavours, a dazzling, long, lime-cordial finish and a texture that comes from the concentration of fruit. Drink it as an aperitif or with any number of fish dishes, salad starters or vegetable options. It can handle spice too.
