This simply brilliant Riesling opens to mesmerizing aromatics of orchard fruits, lime, white peach, white florals, candied melon, herbs, spicy orange zest, smoke and crushed slate that lift gracefully from the glass. On the palate this shows remarkable precision and clarity, as well as incredible overall balance. It goes on to impress as it displays a gorgeous texture, which is framed by bright acidity and saline infused minerals resulting in a succulent mouth watering finish that goes on and on. Showing incredible elegance and purity, this is an utterly captivating Spätlese that is sensational in its youth, but has the potential to age marvelously for many years to come.
