This wine epitomizes the ideal of off-dry Riesling: 30 yr old vines (happy 3rd decade!), low alcohol and bracing acidity. Fragrant aromas of Granny Smith apple, slate and gardenia. The mouthfeel is amazingly soft and lush for a wine with 9.8% alc. and 3.0 pH. Brilliant acidity gives the mid-palate flavors of Crenshaw melon, anis, lemon and lime an etched-in-stone quality. It is an incredibly flavorful, well-balanced, refreshing wine.
