Elegant lemon, white peach and tropical fruit aromas emanate from the glass. Clean lemon and mineral flavours combined with balanced acids put this white wine into the dry spectrum. Lengthy finish. Tasted May/2015

An outstanding food wine, this is a dry, crisp, restrained, even somewhat severe Riesling heavy on the lemon-lime, with prominent slate and crushed rock minerality and a touch of invigorating spritz. There's more lurking in the background -- notably peach-apricot, apple, and herbs, a hint of mango, some (oxidized?) nuttiness that comes later -- but the emphasis is that racy acidity, so refreshing, so cleansing, through a prolonged finish. There could be more fruit, richer fruit, sweeter fruit, for the sake of both balance and depth, but this is very fine, with pinpoint accuracy, nonetheless.
