This is a rather deep yellow straw color, and follows in the style of the winery's distinctive 2005 bottling, with a rich blend of scents and flavors. Lemon polish, jasmine and honey-soaked apricots, tea and tangerines all conjoin in a dense, concentrated and lush wine. The finish carries on with honey, toasted almonds, flowers and an Alsatian oiliness. It's one of the most concentrated and unique Rieslings produced in a state known for them.
