Schloss Volrads Volrats Riesling Trocken 2016

Lychee and pulpy tropical fruit. It's an odd feeling for a palate used to - primarily - Eden and Clare Valley Riesling, to not see the lime and apple florals so redolent in those examples. 

Still debates about terroir would be far shorter if everything were homogenised. Minerally palate, a delicate tingle, long and bringing with it a sense of fruit sweetness, yet it's assuredly dry (Trocken). 

I'd wager it's stronger game is one the palate, the aromatics a little subdued for me. Green apple, hints of peach and pithy citrus. Very interesting, and piquing interest further in German Riesling. 91
