Unctuously ripe melon and tangerine aromas turn flintier and earthier on the palate in this full-bodied Riesling. It's dry and densely textured, heaving with silken layers of lime and lemon, but vivaciously brisk. The finish is long and nuanced, amplified by subtle cardamom and sweet spice hints. It's beautiful now but should improve further through at least 2025.
