2008 Alsace

2008 Robert Klingenfus Riesling, AC Alsace

It's been a while since I've drank a wine of Alsace. I'm correcting that situation right now. You know, I keep telling everyone to keep an open mind about wine, and sometimes I have to remind myself to do so as well. I love German rieslings so much that I neglect all others. Have to avoid that kind of tunnel vision.

Pale colour, but showing great intensity - bouquet of citrus, touch of minerality. Still very young. Very young. Vibrant palate, high strung acidity, all balanced with just a hint of residual sugar. Very drinkable, quite delicious in fact. Alcohol in perfect balance, and I feel that the extract will begin to assert itself more with some bottle age.
