Château Béla-Egon Müller Riesling 2018, Juznoslovenska, Slovakia
Dry white wine, 75cl. Medium bodied 100% Riesling from Juznoslovenska, Slovakia. 13.0% ABV.
A surprisingly refined Riesling with limey flavours and texture are reminiscent of classic Mosel that retains a mouth-watering, mineral crispness on the finish, a revelation of its wild edges.

'A floral, honeyed nose with ripe fruit and some green apple acidity. A very enjoyable wine, and versatile for food.' Lukas Nikanorovas, 20 Stories.
