Medium lemon colored, this rather young Riesling has pronounced aromas of citrus, apple, pineapple, ginger and acacia. The palate is dry (at 13% ABV that was an obvious assumption) with bracing acidity and a medium body. Lemon, grapefruit, green apple, pineapple and some spice coat my palate to a medium length finish that is jaw watering. This is a very refreshing thirst quencher that I am enjoying immensely. Tonight’s pairing is fish and chips so this will work out quite well. I would think this wine can age for a few years, say till 2030 and hopefully pick up some tertiary notes. 91 points from me makes this $22 bottle a 5 star quaffer to look for. Salut….
