Extended bottle aging and impeccable fruit ripeness make this late-release Riesling an absolute showstopper. Wafting of honey, mango and grapefruit, this deeply concentrated wine saturates the palate in dense, creamy waves. Shimmering lime and mineral streaks elevate the midpalate and extend endlessly on the finish. It's stunning now, but composed enough to hold well until at least 2025.
