A testament to the ageability of quality producers at even entry level Mosel Qmp. In the glass, still some silver and green. Low alc, so obviously little tearing (I keep hearing tearing is viscosity, but from a chemistry standpoint, it's rate of alcohol evaporation). Acidity, so on point and defining. Chemical petrol wafts off, dried moss, oregano, candied orange peel, zest, orange blossom...it kind of shows off for a while.

For $25 from a Terry Theise pre-sale, this is a goddamned steal. I'd pay twice this and smile while doing it. Buy it by the case, where you can find it.
