This offers up tons of zesty lime tinged peach fruit on a taut frame with vibrant acidity that gives the wine a lightness that belies it's richness. The finish is decidedly sweet but with a brightness and mineral cut that keeps this refreshing. 89ptsAdd winemaker's notes

Fantastic wine - very well priced. A mineral nose, with peaches opens. Its got searing acidity, thats well balanced by a little residual sugar. Very well balanced, resulting in a lively wine. Nicely mineral, and emollient with more peaches on an extended finish. Served with a steak salad, but would pair with Quiche, salads, sandwiches / picnics or even spicy Asian foods.
Wonderfully light, bright, and smells soft of apples and pears. The sweetness isn't cloying and refreshing
I really like this wine, and think its one of the best Rieslings under $30. The '08 is already out, but the '07 is still on sale in some places. Peach syrup on the nose, with flavors of candied fruits. Well balanced, nice sugars and a crisp tart finish redolent of limes. Excellent.
was missing some of the fruitiness that i like in german rieslings. but not so bad for the price.
Three and a half glasses
