Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Dry Riesling is pale straw in color with intense aromatics of citrus and grapefruit, with hints of honey and spice, adding complexity. Explosive fruit flavors on the palate of citrus, honey and peach. Flinty minerals balanced with a hint of sweetness.

An ideal aperitif or with delicate Asian fusion foods.

Great now and can only get better. Will keep up to 15 years with careful cellaring.
