Whiffs of caramel and peach preserve introduce this sweet but elegantly balanced Riesling. Stone fruit and melon flavors are deeply concentrated on the palate, accented by hints of spice and pollen, along with a reverberating spine of acidity. Light footed and finely textured, it's an excellent value for such a well-made Auslese.
