Van Volxem Saar Riesling 2011

I really like this. It’s a Mosel Riesling (actually, from the Saar, which now falls under the Mosel banner), and as with all Van Volxem wines it is not in the Pradikat system: just a single wine is made, and not different levels defined by the must weight (Kabinett, Spaetlese, Auslese, etc.). This is a beautiful expression of Riesling, and great value for money to boot.

Van Volxem Saar Riesling 2011 Mosel, Germany
12% alcohol. Lively, bracing, pure mineral nose. The palate is dry with lovely mineral, citrus, pear and baked apple character. Very precise with a a spicy, mineral core. Generous and ripe but with good acidity and a dry finish. Weighty but precise, showing beautiful poise. 93/100 (Berry Bros & Rudd, £15.95)

  1. I think this would have no problems over 10 years, and possibly be good still in 30. It has everything there for positive development in the cellar.
