A ripper from Rolly

Rolly Gassmann Riesling 2013, Alsace, NZD $36

Dry, rich riesling with lime, mineral, stone fruit, peach and subtle toasty flavours. Very attractive wine that is now showing the benefit of bottle development with nicely integrates and subtle savoury flavours. Wonderfully textural wine. Very impressive. (Cork)
