Medium gold in color, the honeyed nose shows apricot, minerally/earthy “petrol” notes, and almost a Semillon-like lanolin note. Rich in the mouth and off-dry (like a German Feinherb), it’s got deep fruit and earth flavors and is quite full-bodied (14%), with a little alcohol showing at the tail end of the finish. Not a delicate-styled Riesling by any stretch. It’s the kind of Riesling that will go better with white meats than anything from river or sea.

Wowza! This is one interesting and satisfying Riesling. Almost vendage tardive-ish in the nose, which has crushed rock, burnt honey, sweet smoke, apricot, ripe apple, and sweet floral notes. Rich and slightly sweet in the mouth, the flavors are intense, but so is the acidity. Mouthwatering and long. A great Alsace Riesling.

Intense aromas of jasmine, bergamot, orange blossom, acarcia, and beeswax. Sharp citrus notes finishing with ripe pear and green apple backed with strong minerality.

Overwhelming apple notes with some wildflower honey sweetness in there. Light, and lush. Not a ton of acidity but just enough to add those mineral notes in at the end. Delicious to quaff on a hot day, overall a very delicious if not incredibly complex Riesling.
