    July 19, 2013 - Deep golden and yellow. Bright and beautiful!
    Aromas of Honey paired with Citrus and Stone Fruit. Little Melon.
    Present Minerality and Firestone! Herbal and Floral characteristics with traces of Mint. Very complex, integrated, filigree and smooth!
    Honey (-Melon) with Stone-, Citrus- and Exotic Fruits!
    Beautiful creamy, almost oily texture with a combination of Floral and Herbal flavors. Pleasant acidity adds tension to a smooth and cozy mouthfeel. Finishes long with Fruit, Honey, more Herbs and nice sweetness. Round, perfectly harmonious, velvety and complex!

    A wine with a lot of depth, which combines the softness of Fruits and Honey with a healthy and perfect structure of Minerality and Acidity.
    This is a perfect example for what German Riesling with residual sweetness is able to do! Great now with a lot of potential still.
