White Wine

Balthasar Ress Riesling Sp├Ątlese 1998, Q.M.P., Hattenheim Nussbrunnen, Rheingau, Germany: Truly a benchmark, best in its class! Sweetness yes, but its so seductive with the mouth-watering acidity to balance it and the peach essence that makes you close your eyes in its sunshine brightness.
