2015 Van Volxem Schiefer Riesling

Tasting note

2015 Van Volxem Schiefer Riesling trocken

A mature Riesling from the Saar. It is impressive what quality Van Volxem brings to the glass here with an estate wine, quasi the entry wine. Straw yellow colour. On the nose, the beguiling aroma of matured Riesling. There is the cool slate minerality, bright fruit. It all seems light and fresh and shines in the glass. In the mouth, precise and lean, with a fresh acidity. Green apple and (crisp) peach. Great drinking flow, every sip makes you want more. The long finish stimulates salivation. Despite the screw cap, a great aged dry Riesling. I almost regret having opened the bottle already. But I’m sure there’s still a 2015 to buy! For me, it’s exactly in the drinking window: 2020 to 2030.

Drink through 2030.
