The nose on this Pfalz Riesling is full of ripe apples and pears, but the impact is subtle, delicate and a touch floral. Then the flavour truly arrives, with peach, apricot, pineapple, and more apple, the fruit sweet but not too sweet, bathed in light honey, with a touch of citrus. There's a quirky sulphur note that goes away by the second day, but the main problem is that there isn't enough acidity/minerality to cut through the richness, the careful balance so characteristic of great German Riesling not quite there. But it's just so delicious that even this inadequacy can be excused.
