Lovely, perfumed and incredibly drinkable. Bright acid cloaked in balanced sugar.

Showing its youth, with a palate of fresh ripe apple.   Acid is being bossed a bit by the sweetness.  Sweetness was much more apparent than expected, pushing the higher reaches of feinherb.   Easy to drink and easy to enjoy.

Moderate RS, good acid, syrupy but not overwhelming. Friendsmas.

Trying to broaden my Riesling horizon with this one. I get lemon peel and grass. Good, but I struggle with the residual sugar.
