Beyond the easy pun on the dryness of this riesling – and the fact that it’s as easy to drink as one, two, three… – this is a seriously good Trocken wine with good depth and balance from a much-lauded producer in the Rheingau. Clean citrus aromas, with notes leaning towards stonefruit, a touch of mineral undertones, nice weight and a good deal of tension and freshness, too. Drank itself well before I could write down more detailed tasting notes. Recommended. 88. RC
