Fresh, stony, citrusy, floral Riesling from vine cuttings transplanted 30 years ago from Alsace to Barolo. Really consistently lovely each vintage, especially this!

Super interesting. Tastes like a Riesling but not the soaring petroleum and mineral backbone of a German Riesling. I guessed Australian Riesling (which can be quite magnificent) really drinkable and awesome.

This Riesling. Citrus, crisp, some salinity, mineral notes. I really loved this

Pairing for Roast duck from one of NYCs top German restaurants? Riesling from Piedmont sounded perfect to me. Here I found a bouquet of honey dew melon, yellow flowers, lime zest, crushed stone and hints of petrol. On the palate, a zesty display of lemon-infused green apple, young pineapple and savory herbs saturated the senses, while its brisk acidity left the mouth watering. It finished wonderfully fresh with a lasting zing of pineapple and minerals. Talk about a perfect pairing.

In a room with Grand Cru Burgundy, GG Rieslings, and Special Club, this affordable Langhe Riesling won the gold medal for value. Mohr pls.
