This is a great, light and crisp Riesling with a fruity finish. I really enjoyed it. It is sweet but not overly so.

Too sweet for my taste. Rose petals, slight petrol, stone fruit. Decent acid, but not enough to counter the sugar.

Surprisingly sweet. Trademark kerosene notes and finish. Not something I'd return to. A bottle on hand? Pair with spicy Hunan/Szechuan.

The first bottle of this I bought (2015) was amazing. I was in love with it. Then the next two bottles I bought (2014s) were so disappointing.
