A shimmering yellow-gold color.  A clean, ripe, vervy nose:  slightly floral white and yellow orchard fruit, elderflower, tarragon, basswood and schist.  Focused and authoritative on palate, with just the barest trace of brown spice: crunchy Newtown Pepin apple, Mandarin orange and Nashi pear.  Fleshy and luscious without spilling over the side into oil and saturated fat.  Tart and malic.  A delicate but precise lattice of green acidity keeps it all firm and fresh.  Not the greatest depth but pure, essential and charming.  It’ll still be a while now before the fruit on this begins to retire.  Very good Auslese.  Now – 2020+.
