Right from the beginning, our varietal 2006 Riesling was a very aromatic wine, but since the end of the fermentation it is still opening up and is becoming a hugely flavored wine with a strong minerality. The palate is rich, but not sweet, well balanced with a racy acidity.

(14% alcohol with 8.8 g/l r.s) Bright lemon-yellow color. Floral honey, ripe citrus fruits and apricot on the nose; hints at a late-harvest character. Then broad and sexy in the mouth but racy, with a slightly glyceral, honeyed texture cut by firm acidity. A very tactile, nicely balanced wine with a subtle sweetness. Finishes gripping and long. Today I prefer this to the 2007, but of course the newer vintage was not yet in bottle in September.

Its elegance belies its power. Apple blossom and quince paste notes layer kumquat and pink grapefruit flavors, while a hint of white pepper plays off the zesty acidity. The clean, lingering finish is subtle, echoing a lightly honeyed note. Best from 2011 through 2025.

Ripe and intense, yet with a sense of grace thanks to its vivid structure. White peach, passion fruit and pineapple flavors pick up a mineral accent. Lacy, balanced and long. Drink now through 2015.
