"Very pure and crystalline with white peach, floral, and fresh herbal notes. There’s a minty freshness that lifts this, accentuating the elegance, but at the finish there’s a hint of sweetness." (JS)

Winery Notes:
Tasting Notes:
Taut as a live wire, this steely, dry flagship Riesling pulses with a concentrated acidic electricity. Zesty grapefruit flavors and a smoky minerality converge into a long, dense and deep palate. Although still quite closed in its youth, the long, supple finish reveals a brief glimpse of the extreme potential and maturity yet to come.

Serving Suggestions:
The finesse and body of this Riesling make it a highly food-friendly wine. An ideal and versatile complement to a wide range of savory or spicy dishes, from roast pork to braised poultry.
