Tasting notes:

Toasty and spicy, but with tons of golden-fruit character and a slug of exotic aromas, this is a dramatic Alsace dry riesling that pushes the region’s classic style to the limit, but the exciting, lemony acidity keeps it on track at the expressive finish. From biodynamically grown grapes with Demeter certification. Drink or hold.»
