Good purity of fruit as one would expect from older vines. An off dry style Riesling with peach, apricot, apple, lemon, honey, spice and minerality. Vibrant acidity keeps it all very fresh. It's medium bodied with a sense of viscosity on the palate and alcohol provides some structure (12% ABV). Very good to excellent length. A perfect match for Asian cuisine with a bit of spice. March 2017.

Medium-high aromatics have a nice mineral, petrol and peach nose. The palate is off-dry with very appealing orange, citrus and some melon flavours, along with touches of minerailty and petrol. Acids are juicy and nicely balanced. The long finish moves towards the dry spectrum. All in all, a very good wine. Recommended. Tasted Mar/2017.
