Producer – Anne de K

Vintage – 2016

Region – France – Alsace

Varietal – Riesling

Pricing – $12.99

Alcohol – 12%


This wine is clear and pale lemon in color.


The wine is clean with medium intensity aromas. Aromas of honeysuckle and blossom hit the nose immediately followed by apple and wet stone minerality. I found this wine to be youthful.


This is a dry wine with high acidity and medium body. The flavor intensity is pronounced with notes of blossom, apple, lemon, lime and wet stone. I thought there were some slight tertiary notes of almond in there as well.  This wine has a long finish.

Overall Experience

Anne de K Riesling 2016 has a good balance and complexity level that spanned to about 4-5 flavor clusters. The palate had a higher intensity level than the nose and finish was nice and long. I would call this an outstanding wine that is ready to drink now, but suitable for aging due to high acidity and that almond note I caught on the finish.
