Candied lime, citrus, mineral, wax and petrol aromas. Tangy citrus, lime, with a slight touch of sweetness on the palate. Bright seam of acidity cuts through the middle. Off-dry. Could be cellared a few more years, but is definitely delicious now. Recommended if you like wines that are slightly sweet. Tasted Feb/2012.

Very nice Riesling. Really appreciated that this was off dry as some Rieslings are just too sweet to be paired with moderately spicy dishes. Tasted March 2012.

Nose is rich of fruit lime, green apple, peach and grapefruit. Lively acidity with a medium-body. No surprises on the palate, just lovely green apple and peach. Medium finish.
Tasted March 2012.
