Its pale golden colour anticipates a young wine, however, the nose reveals a bottle aged, matured wine typical of vintage 2016. A true Rhine Riesling abundant in aromas, complemented with green apple, floral and citrus notes. Its minerality lingers on. The palate impresses the taster with its balance again and again: sugar and acidity in perfect harmony. A complex wine.
