Winemaker's Notes

Fresh, clean and crisp, Poet's Leap offers generous aromas of fresh citrus, star fruit, kumquat and flint with flavors of ripe melon and white peach that dance on the palate. This is a lively Riesling with just a hint of sweetness, wonderfully balanced by its natural acidity and a clean, racy finish.

Critical Acclaim

"This tangy wine has presence and depth, with a tart edge to the delicate sweetness, as apple and floral flavors linger on the finish."
90 Points

"The new releases begin with the 2010 Poet’s Leap Riesling made by Armin Diel of Schlossgut Diel. It offers up a fragrant nose of mineral, lemon-lime, and floral notes leading to a vibrant, Kabinett-style, just off-dry wine with pear and apricot flavors on the palate. Balanced by the excellent natural acidity of the vintage, it is likely to evolve for 1-2 years and drink well for another 6-8."
90 Points

"From an espicially cool vintage that flavored acidity and citrus, this Poet's leap is a pretty wine, vibrant and full across the palate, with a mix of apple and peach flavors. Clean and balanced, it adds nuances of tea and finally a hint of honey in the extended finish. Editors' Choice."
