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.
