A Great Non-Oaked White

Posted by on

AlsaceVignesANOTHER NON-OAKED WHITE – and it’s not a Chardonnay.

Alsace Riesling is probable the least understood great white. Their fault, not ours. But I’m not going into all the reasons for its lack of fame – enjoy this bottle. You’re sure to say “I never thought that dry Riesling could have so much character, so much flavour.”  It’s the last great non-oaked white.  (Along with all the ‘great unknowns’ coming out of Italy).

    I’ve never tried an Alsatian Riesling, but I’m a huge fan of the dry Niagara Rieslings. Can you generalize similarities and differences between the two?

    Hi John, fellow Niagara Riesling fan. Generally speaking the Alsace wines are fuller, richer than our locals. More ‘manly’. Have more impact and food hardiness. Enjoy.
