A faint veil of yeast parts to reveal scents of fresh Bartlett pear and zesty lime that go on to inform an infectiously juicy, polished palate. Utmost delicacy from a mere 7.5 percent alcohol is allied with 55 grams of residual sugar that are supportive but not at all overbearing, and the sugar-acid tension in this bottling’s long, vibratory finish is both literally and metaphorically fruitful. Like the best Weiser-Künstler wines, dry or sweet, this displays a remarkable sense of transparency to myriad mineral nuances. (Whereas this wine has typically been raised in tank, this year there is a contribution from cask.) (David Schildknecht, Vinous, June 2017)

This wine has challenged my understanding of pairings each time I've had it. Beef cheeks? Ja wohl....elevated and ethereal. More please. There IS a Riesling for everything.

Starting off #obx light and easy. Green apple, honeysuckle, orange peel, hints of the oiliness to be, slate, sweet but really balanced with a tangy lemony acidic finish. Really like this.
