A melange of rose petals, lychee, caramel and honey scent this stunningly aromatic Riesling. It's unctuously creamy on the palate—silky and rich in sweet grapefruit and mango flavors—but deftly touched with acidity and minerality as well. A masterpiece now, but sure to captivate further from 2020 and beyond.
