An excellent, crowd-pleaser that ought to give anyone who doubts Riesling second thoughts. Vivid coloration, the wine practically glows. Aromas are classic Riesling, recalling sticky honeycomb, apple, overripe apricots and a hint of shaved ginger root. But on the palate, the sweetness is more sensation, less textural — there’s residual sugar, but hardly enough to coat the palate after the finish. Like liquid sunshine with earthy edges. Sort of prickly in texture, faintly spicy, but not abrasive in anyway. On the finish, there is a taste of key lime.
