This riesling is a gorgeous orange-honey color with thick legs streaking down the glass. The aromas are fresh and rich, with mango, honey, lime and minerals. The age has added a wax and honeycomb aroma, which I love. The complexity of aromas is quite something.
The wine starts out plump on the palate, but the acid rushes in. It starts off with a gorgeous white peach flavor, followed by nectarine and honey, but the acid streaks through the entire time, keeping it balanced. There's a flavor that reminds me of biting into a nectarine rind, but in a really delicious way. The mineral flavor really comes out on the midpalate. Honeycomb and a hint of nougat linger on the finish with the acid. It got more expressive with time, opening up to show richer, fuller flavors. Still, that tangy acid lingers.
This really is an endlessly enjoyable riesling, I would love to try this again in ten years. It has lots of evolution left.
