Full, even straw-yellow colour with lemon-gold hues, pale edged. The bouquet is softly full with a moderately concentrated heart of lime fruit melded with secondary toast, honey and mineral notes. This has a gentle presence. Medium-dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate is soft and gently mouthfilling with delicate flavours of lime fruit harmoniously intermixed with honied and secondary toasty development notes.
The mouthfeel is bright and vibrant with fresh acidity, and the wine carries along a light-textured line leading to a lingering finish. This is a gently mouthfilling medium-dry Riesling with harmonious lime, toast, honied and mineral flavours on a vibrant palate. Match with Asian cuisine. Fermented in tank and a very small portion on skins in puncheon to 12.4% alc. and 11 g/L RS
