The wine has a fresh, lively bouquet, with all the characteristic vivacity of a fruit-driven Riesling. It is very fruity and floral, frank and expressive, and agreeably elegant on the palate, this is an ideal example of a pure, dry Riesling; clean, focused and true to the fresh and lively temperament of this grape. It finishes dry, fruity, fragrant yet refreshing, and easy to enjoy.

Wine EnthusiastPale lemon color with slight green hue. Well defined citrus aromas with strong minerality coming through. Crisp, juicy and very refreshing with a taut, focused palate that is packed with a medley of lively ruby grapefruit, tangerine, lime and peach flavors. Firm minerality follows through on the palate adding an appealing savory edge. Medium-bodied with a long mouthwatering finish.

Wine SpectatorThis dry, juicy white exhibits notes of apple, flowers and honey on the palate. This is fresh and clean, finishing with a hint of smokiness. Drink now.
