A little woodsy on the nose, then hints of lemon basil add complexity followed by notes of bees’ wax and a little green hazelnut. Lovely, silken texture on entry is followed by a slightly softer mid-palate that shows hints of creamy edges framing the clear, tense core of fruit. This is rather light-bodied and easy to drink with slightly figgy flavors on the palate being framed with hints of mineral quartz and a gentle raw nuttiness. The finish shows a bit of refreshing acidity, bitter grapefruit flavors and some pollen notes. Perhaps not the most varietal Riesling, but very attractive nonetheless. 88pts
