Biases up front, I’ve had a lot of sweet Reislings and am SO NOT A FAN but when I saw this one at 2 g/l residual sugar it enticed me to try it … Pale straw in color with a mild nose of minerality and a hint of honeysuckle. On the mid palate the wine is nice and crisp with the minerality shining through, along with some nice green apple notes. On the medium length finish there a hint of honeysuckle, but really more lime/green apple tart notes. The acidity clings to the tongue nicely providing some nice depth and complexity. There’s some noticeable creaminess to the wine, not to the level of a malolactic chard but still noticeable. I would give this an 88 or so, quite a lively wine. From the LCBO web site, check stock: This wine is the exact opposite of everything I have come to loath in Riesling, which is an odd way of saying … I like it!
This wine was served at the European Union’s first meeting, in 1959 in Strasbourg. The 2019 is a deft, finessed Riesling, with juicy lemon and peach fruit, racy acidity and a snappy minerality. Pair with vegetable curries.
