Notes of green apple, dried herb, concrete, white grapefruit, and just the slightest touch of developing petrol. On the palate, it begins with laser sharp acidity and bone-dry intensity, bolstered by more weight than expected. Very good length. Steely, powerful, and focused, it lacks a bit of dimensionality and is quite austere at present but possesses the structure to develop into a very good wine with classic Riesling honey, petrol, and elastic weight.
