Star bright, deep yellow gold with silver green highlights. Inviting nose of yellow apple and cement block. RICH medium palate yields yellow apple, honey, honeysuckle, and a hint of flint. Juicy bright acidity more than balances the Spätlese-level sweetness making for a wonderfully refreshing and tasty accompaniment to any meal from simple sausages to the eclectic American Thanksgiving table. Lovely now. Should continue to reward through 2034.

Absolutely stunning Riesling - medium sweet and dense texture. Pronounced nose of saffron, honey, citrus and just a kiss of petrol. All echoed on.the palate with dazzling intensity and texture. Superior quality and great acid balance

Medium gold - a far cry from the pale yellow with green highlights one expects from many Mosel wines. The nose and palate match the visual intensity with petrol, stoney minerality and beguiling citrus and white flower notes. Unabashedly off dry and very long on the palate
