Groebe 2022 Westhofener Riesling Premier Cru dry white wine

K. F. Groebe 2022 Westhofener Riesling Premier Cru dry

Regular price £32.90

"From two Grosses Gewächs vineyards: Aulerde (loess loam) and Kirchspiel (loam). He's always blended the two vineyards. Absolutely dancing; a pirouette of white flowers, white peach, satsuma and mountain- stream pebbles. Has thrilling intensity of peachy purity at its core, and lacy, precisely cut snowflake acidity etching the edges."

Tasted by Tamlyn Currin,

wine writer for Jancis Robinson
