Tangy, Fairly Dry, Fresh presented
|TASTING NOTE: Here's a flirting-with-off-dry Riesling overflowing with white peach, nectarine, pear, applesauce and lime. A subtle mineral undertone adds intrigue and the lip-smacking finish is crisp and clean. Sip through 2025 with lightly grilled or smoked fish. (Vintages panel, Feb. 2018)
