The seductive and shapely 2020 Riesling Aria Late Picked may have generous sweetness (70g/L) but a prickle of retained CO2 combined with the naturally vibrant acidity of Riesling and lightly phenolic character provide the structured framework for this wine to remain focused and clean. Between 30% and 50% of the fruit in this wine was botrytized, and you can taste that: the flavors are reminiscent of marmalade, stem ginger and caramelized pineapple. It's excellently balanced, although I feel it is not as concentrated nor persistent as it could be. Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous
