With aromas and flavours of lemon-lime, peach-apricot, apple, acacia honey, and wet slate, this is lush and sweet but also tart and zesty, the acidity and minerality streaking through the rich fruit, a light spritz adding an ethereal quality. One drawback is a sulfur note, but the rest is just so good, including the bittersweet grapefruit pith and zest on the finish, and the incredible length. A bigger drawback is that it's just too tart right now, and so I would give this more time for the acids to settle and for the complete package to shine as one. Still, an exceptional Mosel Riesling.

Aromas of medium+ intensity featuring clean orange, peach and citrus. Balanced acids on the medium-sweet (MS) palate with orange and tropical fruit flavours. Long, clean finish. Tasted May/2015
