Albert Boxler, Riesling, Grand Cru Sommerberg, Alsace, France 2014
Very precise with great purity as well as being vivid and punchy. This Riesling is all about limes, kumquats and tinned peaches with a hint of honey too. Fresh and inviting with lemon and crisp apple characters. Toasty, savoury and mineral on the finish, this has the ability and the class to age many years because the high-acid backbone will carry it right on through.

One of the most exciting wines of 2016
