Seductive aromas of honeysuckle and saffron open this rich, unctuously juicy Riesling. The palate offers sweet marmalade and preserved-peach flavors alongside bright, citrusy acidity and hints of spice and umami. The finish seems endlessly long. Delectable now, but should develop even more complexity over the next 7–9 years.
