Orange rind and tangerine aromas are enticing introductions to this brisk, exotically spiced spätlese. The palate is sweet, with yellow peach and Meyer lemon, but accented with hints of herbs and savory spices that bring to mind delicate South Indian cuisine. A touch of lemon-pith astringency and acidity adds tightness to the finish.
