Enthusiast 90 - A mellow hint of green apple plays on the nose before all the customary Riesling citrus flavors kick in on the palate: ripe lemon zest and zippy, pink grapefruit. This has lightness, ease and a wonderfully slender, dry, refreshing body.
How can such lightness, such supple slenderness, come with such full flavor? Visions of swirling citrus are made manifest here. Mandarin, kumquat, tangerine: they all dance and flit around a central seam of freshness. Lovely and almost irresistible now, but sure to advance most gracefully. Classic fresh apple and lime garlanded in linden flowers inform a penetrating nose and a polished, infectiously juicy palate, leading to a brightly refreshing and energetically tingling finish.
