Albert Boxler Alsace Riesling 'Reserve' 2016
The Boxler family’s Alsatian roots date back to 1673, producing some of the region’s most serious white wines. Located in the Haut-Rhin, the estate’s vineyards create soil-specific bottles based on distinct single-vineyard sites. The 2016 Riesling Reserve shows gorgeous flavors of green apple, tea leaf, and pear, giving way to a fleshy, stark finish. Delicious on the table; serve with sushi and spicy Asian dishes.
