Enticing lime, lemon, green apple on the nose. Super crisp, dry palate that is chiseled and driven. Diesel notes...

Nice aromatics, and initial attack of lemon-lime (play it safe: always mention lemon-lime if you know it is Riesling). A little golden delicious apple too. But...the finish is dry paper/cardboard, and the body is too light. A little more RS would have suited this too. It's Riesling! Don't be afraid of RS! Acid reflex hit me right away too, making the drinking experience not so great. Better luck next time.
