This delicious semidry Riesling offers an exuberant nose of ripe apple, white blossoms and crushed slate. There's a pleasing roundness to the palate, with a textured, fuzzy feel that carries flavors of crisp apple and lemon underscored by juicy, sweet peach. Laser-focused acidity keeps it all in check, making this a well-balanced offering.
The 2016 Riesling "Semi-Dry" comes in with 23 grams of residual sugar, 6.8 of total acidity and 11.9% alcohol. Fresh and friendly, this balances its sugar well, but there is a sugary nuance on the finish. It is still lively and clean, showing good depth as well and the ability to age. Denser than its 2017 sibling this issue, it lacks that wine's drier and livelier personality, more energetic demeanor and more acidic core. They both work well in their own styles. This tastes great and is a fine bargain, but between the two, I actually liked the 2017 a little more-but just a little. Still, as this airs and warms, it acquires a more pleasing balance and shows even better. As this ages-and it will age well-it may yet improve as the baby fat falls away.
