This very pleasant dry Riesling would be a great introduction to the style for those who think “Riesling” and “sweet” should always be used in the same sentence. Barely ripe pear and apple, still hard and tart, with just hints of sweetness and an underlying minerality, are followed by a touch of petrol flavors, all with a full mouth feel, great acidity, and a lingering finish that teases a memory of limestone, lemon, and honey. Drink it with anything that ends in “…wurst.”
