Immich Anker, Alte Reben Enkircher Zeppwingert Riesling 2017, Mosel, Germany
Tasting Note: A bright, citrus-forward riesling with the sunny elements one adores in Mosel riesling accompanied by zesty, citrus character that enlivens the palate.
Pale-intensity lemon green in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of lemon-lime citrus, mango, quince, white nectarine, pear and white blossom.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied riesling has medium-plus-intensity, tropical and green-and-citrus-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by high acidity and completing with a long finish.
The wine abounds with midpalate complexity and could benefit from additional aging.
Bottle Note: Hand-picked and carefully selected grapes from at least 90-year-old vines grown in the pure, steep, blue-slate slopes in the Mosel valley. Made in Germany with care and love by the Immich family.
