It's like a peach soufflé with an herb sauce, greener than usual for this charmer. A disciplined hedonism here, less tantric than the last two Smaragds but more curvaceous; lime-blossom and (sorry, again) verbena. A beautiful "cool" Hollerin, not so peachy or cox-orange, more lemon balm.
The 2015 Riesling Smaragd Hollerin is a rather fruity and herbal-flavored Riesling with floral and hazelnut aromas on the nose. Medium to full-bodied this is an elegant and piquant Riesling with finesse and a stimulating salinity in the finish, but it is more on the fruity than the mineral side. Good grip in the finish.
