Winemaker Notes

The wine has a fresh, lively bouquet, with all the characteristic vivacity of a fruit-driven Riesling. It is very fruity and floral, frank and expressive, and agreeably elegant on the palate, this is an ideal example of a pure, dry Riesling; clean, focused and true to the fresh and lively temperament of this grape. It finishes dry, fruity, fragrant yet refreshing, and easy to enjoy.

Food Match: sushi, soft cheeses, salmon, pork, fish, duck, crab, asian cuisine.

Critical Acclaim

ST 88
International Wine Cellar

Bright pale yellow. Captivating nose offers stone fruits, minerals and flowers; more classic than the 2009. Denser on entry, then concentrated, energetic and harmonious in the middle, with good limey cut to the floral fruit flavors. Not as generous or open as the 2009 but this is tactile and gripping riesling with more length and lift. More acidity here too, and it appears to have helped preserve the wine's minerality. An excellent basic riesling.
