Nose

The nose shows a distinct mineral note interwoven with classic apple and floral aromas and a hint of white pepper. The aromatics on the nose elude to a classic Riesling palate, one that achieves balance between vibrant acidity and balanced weight.

Palate

The palate reveals a freshness and minerality that only Riesling grown in a cool climate can achieve. Notes of green apple and white pepper dominate the palate, while apple and kiwi notes with floral undertones are expressed with added notes of dried apricot and a soft acidity. Minerality is a pillar of this wine.

Pairings

Riesling finishes with a refreshing acidity, a lingering apple and mineral note with a balanced mouthfeel, making this wine perfectly food-friendly. Ideal pairings include cream and broth-based soups, pork roasts, seafood, sushi and various fresh cheeses.

Notes

Light straw in colour with a faint green hue, reflective and bright.
