THÖRLE ESTATE DRY RIESLING 2015

Germany — Rheinhessen • $18.95 • 90/100

This is a dry, crunchy Riesling. The nose is constrained, hinting at rubber and lean fruit — lemon, lime, apple and pear — with subtle honey and floral notes too. But for me, the wine is mostly about the stony and mineral-toned palate. Yes, the fruit does reappear, but it stays tart and lean, and converges into a lime-tinged and stony finish. A terrific, value-laden Rheinhessen. • Tasted 2017-09-16 • LCBO id#445817 • Find it at your nearest LCBOUNIVINS AND SPIRITS CANADA INC. (Agent)
