Hints of caramelized sugar, pollen and orange peel glaze this succulent, lip-smacking Riesling. Its delicate sweetness is bolstered by sunny squirts of orange and yellow peach, but balanced neatly against a solid backbone of lime acidity. A deeply penetrating spätlese with a long burnt-sugar finish.
