Meyer-Näkel 2022 Illusion Spätburgunder Blanc de Noir White Wine

Meyer-Näkel 2022 Illusion Spätburgunder Blanc de Noir (white wine)

Regular price £23.90
"Peach skin and nuts. Dry, mouth-watering bitterness which takes me to the pink-red playground-streaked crunch of radicchio. Super-elegant. White pepper. Grapefruit. Crab apple. Little origami pleats of flavour unfold within a long sheath of aloof acidity. Pretty sophisticated."
Tasted by Tamlyn Currin,
wine writer for Jancis Robinson
