Had this on Sunday and thought I'd do a quick write-up of it.
Light sort of green/lemon in colour, but certainly not water-white - it looks unripe though, whatever that means. Mildly acidic, greenish, spicy nose to it, but a restrained one. Dry, crisp and minerally on the palate. There's fruit in there, but I think it needs a wee while yet to make itself known. Still a little green, I found, but a nice dry Riesling that is drinkable at the moment. I don't think this one was too dear, but I don't remember the exact price - sorry.
