Weszeli Riesling 2017
The wine is full of mineral, smoke, wet stone, salt, and spice, with the gorgeous, subtle floral aspects that I believe must accompany a great cold climate Riesling from an extreme site. Recently, a former retailer friend of mine told me that if he used the word floral to describe a wine, it often turned people off. If one can’t appreciate the exquisite floral aromas in a Riesling, then maybe this grape is not for them! Of course, I’m not referring to Grandma’s floral perfume… I’m talking the kind of floral that transports you to a dark cobblestone street in Loisen after a cold and unexpected rain, when the faintest waft of night blooming white flower hits your nose—yeah, that sublime kind of floral!
