More about this wine

From grapes harvested in late October this iconic wine has a complex, opulent Riesling fragrance with pungent herbs and ripe plums. It is dense on the palate with a delicate yet firm texture and a rich long finish.

Just the very slightest hint of Botrytis and rose petals. The palate is sublime, complex, with a dense firm texture and long fine finish.



Tasting Notes

Medium green-yellow. Delicately lined with orange zest, a touch of honeydew melon, smoky flavor. Elegant, fine texture, silky body, fresh crisp acidity, pleasant extract sweetness and salty minerality in the finish, very good length, secure development potential.
