This old vine Mosel Riesling is quite intense, and perfectly balanced. The nose offers aromas of candied lime, apricot, green apple, honey, white flowers, a hint of green tea, and tons of wet stone. These carry through to the palate where additional hints of lemon, mango, and nutmeg come out. The wine has intense, vibrant acidity, which makes it seem just off-dry, though there is substantial residual sugar. The finish is long, and tinged with herb, spice, and mineral. Delicious, complex Riesling. Tasted Apr. 2017.

Medium intensity nose of orange, citrus and tropical fruit notes that also show up on the lovely, sweet palate. It has bracing acids and very good length on the finish. Tasted May/2015.
