Bewitching tropical charms in this Riesling, starting with ripe warm apricots, melon, pineapple and cool wet cellar stone minerality. On the palate, luscious peach and mango flavors are kept shrouded in mystery by a fine and balanced acidity before sailing off together into the sunset of a long and sparkling stony finish.
A Riesling of this class and weight needs to be placed into the cellar for at least 5 years. Beautiful savored in a glass on its own, but will also provide a lovely complement to a bowl of freshly picked strawberries.
