Vibrant, bold and opulent Austrian Riesling
Opens clean and precisely on the nose with distinct aromas of fresh white peaches, nectarines and a crushed-gravel minerality. The palate is lush and smooth with juicy lime, pink grapefruit, apricot and peppermint with a touch of salinity on a creamy finish. Charming and generous.
