Complexities of slate and wax meld into notes of tangerine and apricot on the nose of this buoyantly sunny wine. It's dry in style, but plush white peach and honeycomb notes give it a silken richness not necessarily typical of Mosel Riesling. Firm strikes of lime and lemon tighten up the midpalate and extend through a long, steely finish.
