America's love affair with Barnard Griffin Riesling!
Pale straw color with a light touch of green. Subtle notes of flint, apple & pear on the nose. The palate adds some citrus to the orchard fruit, with a hint of spice. Understated acidity and a warm, lengthy finish with flavors of apple pie & mineral. This is a well-crafted, high-quality wine, but it doesn't really do much for me. The only way I can describe it is that it seems, well, "fuzzy" to me; I prefer more focus and crispness from the varietal, a la the German model.
