From the lighter, less unctuous side of the Spätlese spectrum, this is an absolutely delicious, fresh, fragrant, fruity Riesling that's overflowing with floral and fruit flavors and light as a summer breeze. Definitely has that ethereal Mosel combination of delicacy and intensity. Caresses the mouth with spicy citrus and melon fruit along with white flowers and a slight touch of honey. The acid balance keeps the wine fresh and bracing and it does not come across as overtly sweet. It is an extremely versatile wine with food. Another wine that I wish I had purchased more of - this is going to be delicious for many years to come. - HK 2015-07-15
