Zesty lime skin and slaty mineral tones anchor this dry, fairly full-bodied Riesling firmly to the Mosel. A testament to a ripe vintage, it's supple and a bit dense in mouthfeel, but bristling tangerine acidity keeps it punchy and vibrant. It's attractive already, but it should gain complexity and harmony from 2020–2025.
