Seifried, Winemaker’s Collection Sweet Agnes Riesling 2015

Named after the mother of the winemaker, this is sweet alright with 172 grams per litre of residual sugar. The acidity present manages to wash most of this away but does leave a bit more sweetness than you would expect. The aroma is quite limey, but the palate opens up with an impressive array of orange peel, honey, tropical fruits, dried pineapple and stone fruits. Some citrus develops on the long finish.
