NOSE: lovely aged Riesling aromatics — in the middle between primary and fully tertiary; light-to-medium petrol. Satisfying.
BODY: light amber color; no spritz; full bodied.
TASTE: oooooh! complete; smooth; apricot/orange marmalade; 9.5% alc. not noticeable; adequate acidity does prevent it from coming across as fat, but it does not stick-out in an overtly noticeable fashion; for my preferences, this in the front end of its prime drink window, which I suspect will stay open for quite some time.
