The 2012 A to Z Riesling has fresh aromas of wet stone, lime, white flowers, tangerine and ginger. The primary rush of aromatics gains complexity with aromas of white pepper, quince, white currants and raisins and lemon sorbet. Focused fruit (lime, passion fruit and guava) and mineral flavors echo the aromas on the palette. As the wine moves into the mid-palate the strong structure takes over with a hint of residual sugar adding balance and depth to the wine. The finish is extremely long, succulent and clean with lingering flavors of lime marmalade and minerals. Complete, complex and beautiful, this wine will gain in age and complexity over the next ten years, but is already drinking great now. A versatile food wine, it pairs exceptionally well with spicy foods which play nicely against the dynamic layers of this Riesling.
