This off-dry riesling has excellent balance, and lots of ripe fruit, with a nice floral and mineral component. The aromas are of candied lime, tart red apple, peach/apricot, honey, elderflower, lilac, and crushed stone. Flavours show more of the same, with a touch of spice (nutmeg, white pepper). The acidity is high, and the body medium. The residual sugar adds some viscosity and texture to the palate, but the high acidity keeps the wine vibrant. The length is good, with lingering acids. Pair with spicy asian cuisine. Tasted Dec. 2016.
