The vinous results exhibit a delightful corresponding layering. Singed, caramelized pineapple, lychee, white raisin, crystallized ginger, nutmeg and ocean spray combine for a remarkably complex nose and a rich, glossy yet brightly animating palate. Sizzle of pineapple core, tang of fresh lemon, smoky hints of black tea and saliva-inducement of marine salinity guarantee that the long finish, for all of its almost confectionary richness and prominent sweetness, remains invigorating and mouthwatering, even if it lacks the sheer juicy refreshment that nobly sweet Rieslaner can sometimes also deliver. -- David Schildknecht collapse
