While the nose is plush and tropical, there's elegance and restraint on the palate of this complex dry Riesling. It's delicate in body, yet its honeyed lemon and tangerine flavors are bold and penetrating. The finish is long and edged in steel, with a pleasantly astringent kick of lime zest. Beautiful already, it should improve through the next decade.
