Von Buhl Estate Riesling QBA Dry 2015
Stelvin. Another (certified) organic wonder and one of the best white values we can offer. The freshly arrived 2013 Von Buhl Riesling is as tasty as ever. In terms of style it's a return to the pulpier, racier style of the 2010. Either way, it's an excellent rendition of this perennial bargain. The grapes for this cuvée come mainly from Von Buhl's sandstone-rich parcels in Deidesheim and Forst, which in 2013 yielded well below the regional average.
It offers aromatic, juicy, grapefruit, pear, and fresh lime notes. There's plenty of succulent fruit with mouth-tingling zestiness and some lovely, minerally grip and crunchy acidity to close. A super expression of dry Riesling that bats well above it's price point. In other words, it's a forst among equals(TM).
