Succulent yellow plums and cherries burst from each sip of this gloriously honeyed Riesling. Semisweet in style, it juxtaposes a densely packed core of stone fruit against dazzling lemon-lime freshness. Layers of mineral, earth and pollen lend nuance to a long, ambling finish. Drink now, but also hold a few bottles back to mature through 2025.
