Really enjoyable example of a ready-to-drink Riesling that shows the good side of Alsace. Recommended by the Swig! owners and rightly so. Bought and drank two bottles over about a year’s break. Refreshing limey-citrus acidity and freshness with a hint of body / sweetness that made this a real ‘drinker’. The second bottle also gave some ‘petrol’ hints that suggested the extra 12 months had shown some ageing potential. Very nice.
