First of all, let me clarify that this is a dry Riesling. For those of you who know the wines of Alsace, that statement may sound a bit redundant because Alsatian Riesling is traditionally vinified dry, with exceptions few and far between.
This bright, high acid Riesling is an absolute steal at $22. The winery only holds 7.4 acres of vineyards and the average vine age is over 45 years old!! While I’m sure this wine would age elegantly for decades, it’s meant to be enjoyed young – this wine is energetic and racy. There’s little information available on this producer online or from their distributor, but this bottle more than speaks for itself out of the glass and Vignoble du Rêveur is a winery to watch.
Grab yourself a picnic blanket, order yourself take-out Szechuan or tacos and head to the park before this beautiful summer weather comes to an end in September!
