Just really f-ing good Alsatian juice. This is 35% Riesling, 30% Pinot Blanc, 20% Gewurztraminer and the rest mixed varietals. Juicy acids and good textural feel, this is round, bright, and a very thorough/complete wine. It's 1 as well! No it is not sweet. Do yourself a favor and put this on your to do list this week.
