This is still quite muted on the nose, but the palate speaks for itself. Ripe and tropical in style, it also has some young Riesling notes. Powerful, rich and concentrated, but displays excellent balance. Seductive and certainly approachable now, this is going to have a very wide drinking window since it will continue to develop and age for decades to come. It also represents the best value in the whole cellar.
