Seven sensational bone dry Rieslings

Domaines Schlumberger, Riesling Grand Cru Saering, Alsace, France, 2015

Among the many samples in our Global Riesling Masters, this one from Alsace shone for its weight, intensity and great range of flavours, showing that when done well, this part of wine is a world leader for bone-dry wines from this noble grape.

What the judges said:
A wonderful mix of honey, blossom, beeswax, peach and ripe apple fruits, this Riesling has layers of flavour, and complex notes that are suggestive of botrytis-infected berries. It successfully combines an oily palate-texture with a fresh, dry and extremely persistent finish.

ABV: 14%
RS: 4g/l
Price: Approx £25
Score: 93
Medal: Gold
