Dusty floral perfume juxtaposes struck flint and slate on the nose of this deft, dainty auslese. Pristine tangerine and apricot flavors are ripe but crisp, highlighted by a bristling stream of acidity. Exotic spice and dusty pollen notes reverberate warmly on the finish. Ready to drink now but structured enough to continue to improve through at least 2030.
