This graceful Riesling presents a lovely, lithe silhouette rich in minerality and light in fruit. Laser flavors of lime zest and orange cut sharp, precise lines and help harness the natural sweetness into a singular stunning balance. Over time flavors unfold into ripe, juicy layers of apricot, apple and melon and finish with a gentle saline kiss.
With 2015’s optimal conditions for a true Kabinett year, we recommend putting this gem into the cellar for a few years. If opened young enjoy as an aperitif or with scallops, sushi or sashimi.
