Sourced primarily from calcareous soils in Rheinhessen's Spiegelberg vineyards, this dry Riesling offers surprising elegance for such a reasonably priced wine. There's a mineral richness to the palate that lends an expansive feel to plump white-peach and tangerine flavors. The finish wraps up with precision. Drink now through 2020. This cuvée is also labeled under the Gryphon Crest brand.
