Scents of lemon polish, jasmine and honey-soaked apricots start this wine off with a surprise. It's rich, dense, concentrated and lush, almost fat, but balanced and packed with nuances. The finish carries on with honey, toasted almonds, flowers and tea. For a dry Riesling it shows remarkable concentration and lush fruit flavors.
