About

Ratings:

93

"A delightful Alsace dry riesling with discreet fruit-salad character and a hint of red-cherry alongside the apple, pear and citrus aromas. However, it’s not only the unusually subtle aromas for this category that make it stand out; the ripeness of the acidity is also impressive. Just a hint of tannin neatly supports the finish. Very food-friendly. Drink now."

Alsace entrances not just because of fruit purity and aromatic finesse, but because it does these things with an inner wealth, a structure and a sinew which eludes both its German peers and the dry Riesling champions of Australia and New Zealand. The fruits in this justly badged ‘classic’ are round-contoured and poised. There’s a whisper of peach and apricot behind the apple and grape, and clove spice – but all of subtle vineyard origin. It’s mouthfilling and tender yet vivid, packed with freshness and drive: a spotless Riesling for all seasons. Drinking Window 2021 - 2025
