Dopff au Moulin Riesling Alsace 2011


This is a solid, if unspectacular riesling.  A pale intensity lemon in colour, it has aromatics that are youthful and remind of lemon, lime, stones, lemon peel, talc and flowers.  The palate is dry, has medium to high acid, and expressions of lemon, lime and stones together with a youthful sparkle.  The length is fairly short, and the wine seemed a bit hot and stretched at times, but otherwise it's pleasant enough.  Acceptable
