Richter's wines are some of the best values in German wines available here in the US.  This is a dry version with just a touch of age on it.  Very nice.  Light golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose has peaches, wet rocks, spice with the slightest touch of diesel.  Medium bodied.  On the palate, the peaches carry thru with underlying minerality.  This is dry.  The finish has some warmth to it.  It is drinking well right now, and should continue to do so for the next five years or so.  It worked nicely on its own but is better with food.  A beet and goat cheese salad was perfect.
