There's a whiff of summer—ripe yellow peaches caramelizing on the grill—trapped between the many layers of this honeyed, off-dry Riesling. The palate is polished with an undertone of wet stones and notes of freesia and grapefruit zest. Brisk acidity and a long, minerally finish round out this cheerful yet focused wine.
