Subtle hints of white linen and honey introduce this intensely extracted, deeply penetrating auslese. Luscious tangerine, pineapple and stone-fruit flavors are forward and fruity but nuanced by layers of smoky minerals and spine-tingling acidity. It's a bold little wine that's stunning already but will improve for decades ahead.
