Bone dry with a bright, lively explosion of lime-drenched stone fruit. Apricot and nectarine mingle with tart green apple, jasmine and honeysuckle perfume, crushed oyster shells, and a very appealing hint of kerosene. Absolutely gorgeous now but I’d love to revisit it in 5 to 10 years.

Great stuff. Dry wine with apricot, peach, kerosene, bright minerality and amazing acid. I want more!

Nose: key lime pie, lemon, white florality

Palate: salinity, unripe stone fruit, slight petrol, minerality

Dry, high acid, med alcohol medium body

The more I drink it,  the more I like it.  Better on day two. Refreshingly acidic/crisp. 89

'Looks very religious,' my friend said. Tasted that way too.

Wachau Riesling at its best. Clean, straightforward (über Germanic) with savory finish.
