While tight and mineral focused, this dry, featherweight Riesling seems to accumulate depth and body with each sip. It's brisk and spry, but a delicious streak of lanolin lends a waxy sheen that amplifies delicate notes of apple, pear and blossom. A strike of zesty lime acidity enlivens the finish. Drink now–2019.
