It has a youthful robe with an intense pale green colour, dominated with the green and pale yellow highlights of springtime lime tree foliage, all completed with a silvery sheen. Brilliant aspect with narrow but quite rounded legs. The bouquet is still a bit discreet and fresh, not too arrogant, it is harmonious, clear and well-stated yet quite dense and fruity with hints of lime, fresh kiwi, lemon-grass, 'Mirabelle', greengage and a slightly mineral edge. This is a dry wine that is also fresh and lovingly thirst-quenching on the palate, it is well-balanced with a generous and well-formed structure underlined by the wonderful freshness and vigour which is so typical to this grape variety's elegant temperament. The grapes are perfectly ripe. This is a wine which can be consumed immediately but would benefit from being laid down for up to 5 years which would intensify the density and minerality of its aroma. Best served at 8°C. Would make an excellent aperitif. Best served with turbot, sea bass, monk-fish, lobster, king prawns, seafood, sander, pike, salmon, scallops, marinated or raw fish carpaccio, goat's cheese.

Vinous Pale yellow-green. Nectarine, green apple and medicinal herbs on the nose. Juicy, spicy and energetic in the mouth, showing lovely lift and cut to the flavors of lime, apple and minerals. Finishes perfumed and long. With 7.9 g/l total acidity and only 3.7 g/l residual sugar, this Riesling is resolutely dry. In fact, it strikes me as especially spicy and lemony, almost tart; I’d forget about it for a year or two and then try a bottle to see how it’s coming along.
