Effervescent nose showing mineral, apricot, orange and citrus. It's medium-bodied with bright acids and very nice aroma replays with primarily orange and grapefruit flavours. There is 40 g/l residual sugar, but comes off as medium-dry (i.e. still quite sweet) due to racy acids. Very good length on the finish. Tasted May/2016.

Another good value Riesling from Germany. Yes there's pleasant peach, pear, lemony tartness, minerality, honey and a faint floral soapy note. But it's the lovely balance and interplay between off dry sweetness and fresh acidity that provides such satisfaction on the palate. Very good length. Pair this with spicy Asian or Mexican cuisine, stuffed poultry or pork with dried fruit based stuffing. Sept. 2016.
