A golden straw colored wine with outstanding acid/sugar balance. Don't be frightened by the higher residual sugar! As with the other 2019 Rieslings, this one has great complexity- aromas and flavors remind me of fresh apricots, orange, spice and tropical citrus notes. This wine should really develop beautifully over the next decade.
