"This is my favorite white wine of the year. Entirely from the noble varietal Riesling, it exemplifies precision, purity and focus that few wines achieve. It reveals spice as well as smoky, mineral aromatics. Medium-bodied, this is a satin textured wine packed with flavorful lush white fruits. Superb depth, it is immensely engaging. While it is a tremendous joy to drink now, it will age up to 12 years."
