Tried this wine 5/18 in honor of Riesling Week. It had all of the flavors I was looking for-- white peach, grapefruit, citrusy vibrancy and none of the overwhelming sweetness. I would consider this a Kabinett or maybe Spatlese riesling made in a dry style, probably one of the nicest I've tried recently.

Winemaker's Notes:

Aroma: Apricot, peach and grapefruit. Taste: Apple and peach with intense mineral notes and an elegant and racy finish. Name story: Palatina is named for the royal palace "Aula Palatina" built by Emperor Constantine who encouraged the vineyards in this area to flourish around 300 AD. Vineyards and winemaking: From the renowned Scharzhofberger, Kaseler Herrenberg, and Piesporter Goldtröpfchen vineyards. Low-yielding vines in slate soils on intensely sloped terrain. Native yeasts, slow stainless steel fermentation and gravity flow winemaking to protect the purity of the fruit.
