Egon Müller Riesling Qba 2018, Mosel, Germany 75cl
Dry white wine, 75cl. Full bodied 100% Riesling from Mosel, Germany. 10.5% ABV.
Pure nose of apple and lime, with a beautiful base of slate and a gentle top note of petrol. On the palate, the wine is fullish, pure, and vibrant, with lovely complexity. Bright, zesty acidity leaves a superbly mouth-watering feel in the long finish.
Tasting notes from the judges of the Sommelier Wine Awards 2020
'Pretty fantastic, with lots going on. Notes of stone fruits and some tropical notes too with minerality to balance and some good intensity.' Tim Smith, Winesurfer Consulting. 'Clean, tropical notes, as well as blossom, honeysuckle and elderflower, with a hint of development. These sit alongside light petrol hints and some grapey characters too, leading to a great, elegant finish.' Marco Marcuzzo, Zuma Rome.
