TASTING NOTES

"A racy style, with well-defined flavors of ripe apple and pear, this crisp white delivers a citric snap, accompanied by rich notes of vanilla cream and spice, with a custardy finish. Drink now through 2018. 40 cases imported." Wine Spectator

"Herb-tinged aromas of apricot, vineyard peach and acacia honey, complicated by discreet spices. Juicy on the palate, showing a vibrant if somewhat austere acid structure. This unctuous yet youthfully closed riesling shows impressively persistent flavors of sweet, ripe stone fruits." Joel B. Payne, Vinous.com

"Honeyed grapefruit. Spicy and the alcohol shows a little on this (warm, end of tasting) sample. Dense, creamy and rich." Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com
