Tasted at 53-56 degrees on the IT temp gun. Tiffany gold in the Riedel with haunting aromas of honeyed peach, hay and cantaloupe. A full-bodied ride with thunderous acids lighting a flavor-packed pipeline of orange rind, lime zest, Granny Smith apple, and grapefruit. What a dame! Great pairing with chicken cutlet.
