Albert Boxler Riesling Vielles Vignes 2005

Member Review by Uwe Kristen:

The old vines make an early appearance. The nose is equally developed, with a pronounced intensity of apricot, bay leaf and plums. On the palate it is off-dry, with a noticeable alcohol level and a fairly full body. The acidity is crisp, keeping the wine from becoming too heavy. Perfectly balanced. A pronounced intensity of spiced fruit (baked apple with tarragon) as well as apricot jam leave a long impression on the palate before they slowly fade, a medium(+) length with a surprising finish of mouthwatering pear fruit at the very end.

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
