Tim’s Tasting Notes

August Wine review

90

2015 Sybille Kuntz Riesling Kabinett Trocken, Mosel

TBC, 12%, www.sybillekuntz.de

A little less concentrated than the Spätlese release (as you'd expect) but this has ghe focus and freshness that are typical of all of Sybille Kuntz's 2015s. Citrus, green tea and spring flower notes are underpinned by minerally acidity and stony, mouthwatering crispness. As pure as Riesling gets.

2014 Thistledown Great Escape Cool Climate Textural Chardonnay, Adelaide Hills, South Australia

£13-15, 12.5%, Alliance Wine

A fruity, modern Aussie Chardonnay from the cool (well coolish) Adelaide Hills, where the oak is unintrusive and the pure pear and peach fruit is allowed to express itself. The result is one of those whites you want to glugg by the glass in your nearest wine bar.
