The 2022 Riesling Hochrain Smaragd sports a smoother, gentler vibe. Despite its linearity, there is a guiding light of stone fruit juiciness. It is slightly more generous and more emollient in style, but it shows great precision. Taut, juicy and bright, it evokes greengage framed by lemon. (Bone-dry)
