90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - December 2010

Pale straw-yellow. Subtly complex nose melds spiced apple, yellow peach, ginger and quinine, plus a more exotic suggestion of tropical fruits. Dense, quite dry and lightly saline; almost austere today but the palate-dusting texture and sheer refreshment value of this distinctly adult style of dry riesling make it very easy to drink. Finishes with terrific lift and energy. This would make a great summer wine.

Soft and peachy, great with spicy food.
