Joseph Händler Riesling 2015 Pfalz, Germany

My Rating 88 Points.   

Price $7.
Pale lemon in color with a golden hue.

Fruity on the nose with lemons, citrus, light diesel, bananas, candy, green apples, minerals, sea salt and white pepper.

Light to medium bodied, crisp and refreshing, with high acidity and thick legs.

Off dry on the palate with citrus, tropical fruits, diesel, lemons, bitter almonds, grapefruits, salt, minerals, herbs and lemongrass.

Long finish with bright acidity.

This is a very entertaining Riesling from Pfalz, at an excellent price. Well balanced, refreshing and bright, with nice acidity to make the residual sugar not too noticeable.

Great to have, by itself, on the porch, and great to pair it with spicy Asian food. Needs to be very chilled for maximum enjoyment.

10.5% alcohol by volume.
