Bill Zacharkiw's wines of the week

Under $18: Everyday drinking

Riesling 2013, Qba, Mosel, Selbach-Oster, Germany white, $17.30, SAQ # 11034741. Classic entry level Mosel riesling. While you don’t get the fruit intensity or aromatics of higher priced bottles, it delivers on what the Mosel is all about – minerality and a driving acidity. 298 more words
