Fresh, tensile and loaded with filigree structure, this is one sharp and linear dry Riesling. The cooler vintage is apparent, but I still get some peach, honey, and then the citrus parade starts with lime, lemon and pink grapefruit. An underlying saline and smoky mineral note completes the terroir expression. Complex. Gorgeous. Oddly enough this would pair exceptionally with some ice cold raw oysters with just a spritz of lemon juice.
