This light, off-dry riesling has a generous nose of petrol, typical Mosel flint, peach-apricot fruit and fine herbs....

Still marked by sulphur, this medium-dry riesling at the entry-level from Bischöfliche is light, breezy, easy...

The DOM line is the bottom of this fabulous producer's Riesling pyramid, but this Mosel is still a remarkable achievement. It's young, and quite sulfurous on the nose (more and more as it warms up), but there's also a good deal of depth and complexity. The main notes are slate and lemon, and it's quite sharp on the surface, but the minerally tartness is supported by juicy pineapple and peach, and the result is invigoratingly off-dry, the sharpness softened, rounded out. Certainly not as harmonious and profound as other options on the pyramid, but still very lovely.
