Agree the juicy stone fruit comes through. Gooseberry, lemon sherbet, lime. The wine is still very mineral-driven, but quite interesting and nice. Shows what German Riesling is capable of, even a very cheap wine.
The lime & minerals really hit up front on the nose but the deeper you inhale the more the juicy stone fruit comes through. On the palate the fruit has faded compared to previous bottles but it's still there, this just just an acidic/mineral-driven machine. I miss the fruit somewhat but I love how racy the structural components still show. I can hardly believe how a $9 white can show this well 5 years down the road but that's German riesling for ya.
Nice pale straw color, with a pleasant fruit and pear on the nose, not dry and not too sweet with a touch of spice and well balanced. Delicious and nice long finish. Will get more of this for our cellar.
- Light gold color - Pale yellow with fruity aroma and minerals. Well balanced, not too acidic with favors of pear and pineapple. A good finish. Not the best we've ever had but it was a solid Riesling and would probably get it again.
