W. Gisselbrecht Schiefferberg Single Vineyard Riesling 2013


This wine, an Alsace riesling, was spotted for sub $20 at a big box retailer.  And it's pretty good too.  It has quite pungent lemon, metal and stone aromatics.  The palate is about line and length, with very high acid helping cut through its mid weight body.  Some fruit sweetness and the high acidity helps blur the dry/off dry distinction, but I settled on dry.  I'd buy this.  (Region: Alsace, France, Rating: Good, Would I buy it based on this tasting? Yes, Drink: now to 2025, Tasted: Mar, 2017)
