Tasting Notes: This is a Riesling to be served chilled. Cold even. It's an expression of Riesling whose individual parts turn a tad flabby when warmed to room temperature but when consumed straight out of the fridge combine into a classic terroir expressing gem filled with orchard and citrus fruit, good minerality and excellent texture - especially considering the low alcohol. Acid level is not for the faint of heart, yet, serves its purpose - balancing the fruit and full-ish body - leaving the wine with a (mostly) dry finish. Drink 2012-2014.
