"The Schafer-Frohlich 2007 Riesling halbtrocken (entirely from Bockenau; largely from Felseneck, and reviewed at an earlier stage is issue 178) brims with white peach and honeydew melon accented by pungent herbs, tart berries, wet stone, and sea salt.

Incidentally, half of this fermented spontaneously, and half with cultured yeasts.
