Bassermann-Jordan 2022 Kieselberg Riesling Grand Cru dry

Bassermann-Jordan 2022 Kieselberg Riesling Grand Cru dry

Regular price £48.80

"Peaches and nectarines upfront start the wine on a soothing charm offensive, but that charade is quickly dropped as the acidity and spiciness races in and takes over. So spicy! Ras al hanout. Touch of braised fennel. A little different; offbeat in a good way, with weight and warmth to balance the racy, breathless acidity. Finishes golden, fanning out into yellow fruit. This will be a pleasure to drink at every stage of its life."

Tasted by Tamlyn Currin,
