Wolfberger – Roches Calcaires – Riesling 2016 – Alsace

The nose is fresh, aromatic and slightly intense. It reveals notes of white flowers (lemon tree, honeysuckle), lemon and small notes of vine peach associated with a hint of minerality as well as a very discreet hint of fresh apricot and spices. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, a bit « perlant » (lightly sparkling), suave, a bit aerial and offers a slight acid frame/citrus zests, fat as well as a small minerality. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of ripe lemon, ripe mandarin and ripe/juicy peach and touches of exotic fruits as well as small touhces of flowers and racy minerality. Good length.
