Another superb Riesling - Van Volxem Alte Reben

Isn’t Riesling wonderful? And Germany’s top properties seem to be able to achieve things almost effortlessly with this grape, and at reasonable prices, when compared with most other regions worldwide. This wine is from Roman Niewodniscanski’s Saar estate, and it’s a really superb example of complex dry Riesling that’s drinking well now. I don’t think it cost me all that much, considering the quality.
