Similar to the 2019 Riesling, the 2021 vintage is also approachable as a young wine. The early season heat summation and good summer sunshine hours have benefited and supplied the ripeness we desire.
The wine is approachable now and can cellar for another seven to ten years to come to full maturation.
Riper fruit aromatics like rock melon and yellow plums are mixed with floral notes of white-water lilies and clover, with hints of white tea, lime zest and fennel seed. The palate is equally aromatic with a rich and voluptuous entrance and an immediate involvement of fresh lemon(cello) acidity. It is all “smiles up front and business in the back” for this wine, as the stern acidity and structure move in to dominate the amiable front.
