    (2001 Vintage) A deep, bright gold, with just a suggestion of green. An open nose; ripe apple/peach aroma is quite distinctly Riesling in character, with good freshness, sappy concentration and focus, and an elegant style. Very good indeed! The palate also shows elegance, with plenty of apple/peach flavor, plump and fleshy juiciness, and good mineral. Delicious! Good body, some richness, balanced and smooth, dry, with modest-good acidity.
