A glaze of honeycomb lends a waxy sheen to crisp tangerine, pineapple and gooseberry in this delicately framed dry Riesling. It's gossamer-fine in texture, but there's a scintillating power within, powered by an electric core of acidity. Subtle hints of exotic spice and tart lime pith reverberate long on the finish. It's enticing now but should gain depth and finesse through 2025.
