Schlumberger Rieling Kitterle 2001

One of the wines I bough in Alsace last year, showing a couple oof extra years maturity and it's gorgeous - creamy mineral, citrus, some hints of peach, lovely complexity and great weight. There's something about really good whire wines where the minerallyness seems to shimmer, not quite anything that you can put your finger on, just thing little glittering of a sense of place. Lovely, though I really ought to go to bed, especially as I need to work tomorrow then I have to get a silly early flight to Hungary for this little competition....
