Winemaker's Notes

This wine expresses a complex nose of fresh and citronnés or to combine orange, fishing and apricot and mentholated notes.

The mouth is fresh, crisp full of fruit, this dry wine that reflects the best riesling varietal expression.

Critical Acclaim

"A firm Riesling, with razor-sharp acidity backing fruit flavors of Granny Smith apple, juicy tangerine and pink grapefruit, underscored by stone and smoke notes and a hint of fresh earth. It's all deftly woven together in a focused, elegant package, with a mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2020. "
