($25) Bright, pale yellow. Pungent aromas of lime, yellow peach and crushed rock, complicated by a tropical fruit nuance. Juicy, spicy and intense, with ripe acids framing the rather laid-back flavors of apricot, apricot, ginger and exotic herbs. Took on a more creamy texture as it opened in the glass but still comes across as more or less dry. Finishes with a persistent pineapple flavor and good dusty, tactile grip. Classy riesling.
