Paul Blanck Alsace Riesling Rosenbourg 2010

It is true, I neither buy nor drink enough riesling as I should.  German riesling, Alsace riesling, Clare and Eden Valley riesling, Austrian riesling, all unduly neglected.  I don’t really even have the excuse of price with Clare and Eden Valley riesling – both are well underpriced relative to quality.  This wine from Paul Blanck is really a rather exceptional example of high quality Alsace riesling for just under $50.  It has aromatics of stones, smoke and lemon zest.  The palate is dry, the acidity high and the length towards long on the finish.  This is a firm but delicious wine that will interest those brought up on steely Aussie riesling.  It should age easily for another decade, but is joyous should you look at it now.
