Pale lemon. Citrus notes and a touch of kerosene. On palate lemon and honey and cumquat. More fruit driven than mineral with white peach evident. More sweet than you would expect from 13.5 % Alcohol. This is the Signature Wine of Paul Blanck - the Schlossberg Grand Cru Riesling. A lovely Riesling from 375ml in this case.

A wine that divided the class. Some called for it to be outstanding and other just acceptable, I was bang in between. Lillies, orange blossom, white peach, green melon and wet stones. Youthful. Dry with pretty high acid that defines the wine and creates linearity. Slight chalky finish and decent length. Sort of wine I’d get around.

Lots of citrus and tropical fruit. Bright acid and a tart, lengthy finish. Good stuff!
