Meandering streaks of mineral oil and petrol hint at the developing maturity of this otherwise sunny, tangerine-scented Riesling. Dry in style, with a lush, expansive mouthfeel, it's balanced by a crush of wet stones and bitter white-tea notes on the finish. It's an elegant, complex wine to enjoy now through at least 2020.
