Had to have something with a pecan-kumquat tart, and although it was too young by a decade, it fit the bill. Tastes as expected, if a little apricot heavy right now.

First time tasting this. Stellar balance of flavor and sweetness taking a backseat.

Slightly low acid for Riesling, but it glows from an almost excruciating level of mineral energy. Slight botrytis, well-integrated with petrol and a range of lower-intensity florals. Light on its feet. ~40g/l RS and tastes like it.
