Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

I initially had this a little too chilled and was only getting faint aromas of pineapple and pear. As it warmed slightly (11-13 degrees), it was much more expressive, adding white flowers, minerality, lime, and a very light touch of petrol to the mix. The acidity is high but not too high, and the taste comes through as mainly lemon and pineapple.

I paired this with a mildly spicy Asian pork stir fry to great effect.
This dry Alsatian white wine made from classic Riesling grapes features crisp green apple notes and a deep core of minerality. Finished with a lively kick of acidity. - Community Wine Reviews
