Tony Aspler’s Weekly Wine Pick: a citrusy Alsace riesling



This is a quintessential Alsace riesling. Aromas of peach and citrus fruits rise from the glass, mingled with petrol notes (characteristic of maturing riesling). The wine is medium-bodied, with peach and floral flavours and a mineral note all carried on bracing acidity.

Food match: grilled salmon, mushroom flan
