Most Riesling from Ningxia is actually Welschriesling, or Italian Riesling as they call it. But this little number is the real thing, and shows great expression of the variety. This is more of an Austrian style, rather than that of Alsace or Germany, although the acidity is not quite on the same level - but it is still an impressive example. Aromas of lemon blossom, grapefruits and stone fruits come to mind. It is dry, elegant and zesty on the palate.
