On the sweet side of off-dry, this Riesling offers up pear and apple drizzled with honey, with underlying minerality and a tinge of petrol on the finish. It lacks the balancing acidity that would allow it to stand on its own, or with any food except something with plenty of spice. Drink with spicy Vietnamese or Thai.
