Zusslin Grand Cru Pfingstberg Riesling 2011

Tracing its origins back to 1691, Zusslin is now in its 13th generation. Located in Orschwihr between Colmar and Mulhouse, their Grand Cru Pfingstberg Riesling 2011 is a tightrope balancing tour de force between cooked apples in compote with star anise, lychee, honey, minerally fruit and vivid, lived freshness. Alsace at its tenterhook best. Savour in a big, fat Burgundy glass. Skinny ones for white wine won’t do it proper justice.
