Light yellow colour; showing some development. The bouquet is soft and subdued, reserved and ripe, with some stone fruit aromas. The wine is very intense, bright and crisp in the mouth with lime and lemon acidity and very crisp cool-grown riesling flavour. There is attractive sweetness creating a juiciness in the middle. There's a slight grip and the finish is soft, balanced and seamless. Drink: 2019-2029' (Feb19)
