Big bear hug

Lowland

We were greeted by an enticing combination of citric and sweet aromas with lemon cookies, lemon meringue pie, lime sorbet, candied citrus peel and a white chocolate and lime mousse.  The taste was like a big bear hug, a nice gentle feeling of warmth. Flavours still citric; lime and sea salt dark chocolate and a rose petal ice cream with ginger lemon shortbread. Water changed the nose and palate substantially; chalky, dry and a minerality for which the Mosel Rieslings are well known and liked for. In the long finish, there was a nice spicy sweet crystallised stem ginger note
