Notes of waxy lanolin and crushed slate add an earthy, savory tone to ripe, rich orange-marmalade flavors on this juicy little Riesling. Dusty minerality and tart lemon-rind notes extend on the long, bracing finish. Drink now for it's fruity freshness, or hold for 5–7 years at least to allow its minerality to intensify.
