Pale straw-yellow. Subtly complex nose melds spiced apple, yellow
peach, ginger and quinine, plus a more exotic suggestion of tropical

Finishes with terrific lift and energy. This would make a great summer

Great dry Riesling
Really nice, dry, complex, but lacks the sparkle of some other similar Rieslings. Should improve with age.
