This dry Alsace Riesling has typical aromas of lemon/lime, green apple/pear, apricot, and a stony mineral character, with slight hints of honey developing. On the palate, this wine is somewhat disjointed: while the acidity is high, the fruit character lacks freshness (bruised/oxidized) and the alcohol is too noticeable (though only 12.5). Probably would have been at its best last year. Tasted Oct. 2016.
